The largest member of the terrier family and often referred to the "King of Terriers", the Airedale is valued for its style, brains and clownish wit; they are probably the most versatile dog anyone could own. They are exceptional as both a companion and hunting partner. Also they possess tremendous guarding instincts. In addition, Airedales are loving and affectionate and require human companionship above all else.

Airedales are believed to be a cross between the now extinct Black & Tan Terrier and the Otterhound, bred to outfight, outhunt and out-think any other dog.  Albert Payson Terhune sums up the Airedale as "swift, formidable, graceful, big of brain and an ideal chum and guard dog."

  • The Airedale is the largest member of the Terrier family and is often referred to as the "King Of Terriers."
  • He is cocky and strong willed, very courageous and oblivious to pain.
  • He is truly a loyal companion devoted to his family.
  • He is very patient with children and loves to play.
  • He is a genetically hearty dog with few physical problems.
  • He will always be enthusiastic and at your side in whatever you do.
  • In the 1920's the Airedale was one of the most popular breeds in the U.S.A. even the president, Warren Harding, owned an Airedale named Laddie Boy.
