I would say no. Airedales are extremely stubborn and if you cannot control it you will have quite a challenge. With getting an adult you would atleast skip the puppy years, but you never know what kind of dog you're going to get, and good luck trying to make it change.

Airedale Terriers are not for the novice dog owner. They demand strong human leaders who are kind and gentle but firm about rules. They need lots of fast paced exercise and human interaction and a job or they get bored. If bored they can dig, open cans, chew, countersurf. They need to respect their humans as leaders. They are clowns and can be animal aggressive unless properly socialized and trained. This requires effort. An older well trained 'dale can be wonderful but you still need to be the leader of the pack. If you make play and training fun and rewarding, you will find you can control the independent thinking mentality of the airedales. I am lucky enough to be leader of 2 and in the future we will add another.
