Airedale Terrier Breed

Airedale Terriers

The origin of the Airedale Terrier is enveloped in the same veil of theory and conjecture which shrouds the origin of all species in man's attempt to retrace the stages in evolution

These constant companions and guardians, while excelling in agility, eyesight, hearing, and untiring courage, lacked the keen nose and swimming ability of the rough-coated Otter Hound, with which they competed in the chase, and was the wise reason for crossing the two breeds in the constructive attempt to embody the virtues of both in a better breed of larger and stronger terriers.

Airedale Terriers are used on great game in Africa, India, Canada, and our game lands. They were among the first breeds used for police work in Germany and Great Britain. They have also been used in several wars as dependable dispatch bearers due to their ability to suffer wounds, without faltering at the next order for duty.

This dog has a sweet disposition but is very protective of it's owner and family. When trained for defense and attack they are unbeatable for their weight. A faithful companion.

Height - 22 to 24 inches. Weight - 45 to 70 pounds.

Coat types - short, wiry, black, tan markings. Hardly ever sheds. Grooming 3 times a week.
