From the 1995 ATCA Official Membership Roster & Information Booklet:
"It amazes us how many of these unwanted dogs are absolutely beautiful--often under long and matted coats. We are equally impressed that their temperaments are most often sweet and appreciative of our attentions, with no adverse effects from the ordeals they must have endured. Although the origins of many of these dogs remains unknown, we all too often discover that some Airedales purchased in pet shops are not far removed from some of the breed's top dogs and bloodlines.
Airedales for adoption are kept in foster homes. During the time it takes to find the right home, they are evaluated for temperament and personality. Dogs of questionable temperament are euthanized. All dogs are neutered or spayed, given all shots that are due, tested for heartworm, treated for internal and external parasites when necessary, and properly groomed and bathed."
