Airedale Terrier Puppies
Description: The Airedale Terrier is known as the "king of terriers." They excel in agility, eyesight, hearing and have untiring courage. They have a sweet disposition, but may be aloof with strangers. Airedale Terriers have excelled in being a hunter for foxes, badgers, weasels, otters, water rats and ducks. The Airedale Terrier makes a good jogging partner because of their athletic physique. They are all tan except for their black saddle, black tail and sometimes black ears. Their fur is wiry and hard, as it appears. The ears are dropped down and they have a long muzzle with a beard at the end. Owners should be strong and confident who can combine firm discipline with patience and precision. They are good with older children and they make a loyal family pet. Not an ideal apartment dog, they should have a fenced yard. The Airedale Terrier is an intelligent breed, with responsive and loyal abilities. They make great playmates as well as excellent companions and hunters.
Other Names: Working Terrier, Waterside Terrier, Bingley Terrier
22 - 23 inches.
Colors: They have
a black saddle on a tan body, with top of the neck and the top surface of the

Terriers are intelligent, responsive, and loyal. They have a playfulness about
them that makes them ideal playmates for older children. They have a "dignified
aloofness" towards all. It has been said about them that they "can do anything
any other dog can do--and then lick the other dog."
Care and Training:
Brush with a stiff bristle brush to remove dead hair three times a week. Minimal
trimming is needed. Bathe only when necessary. Their fur should be hand-stripped
twice a year. Airedale Terriers need daily exercise. They are responsive to
training and the easiest to train of all the terriers.
Activity: High. These dogs
are very active.
Health Issues: Airedale Terriers may suffer from eye problems, hip dysplasia, skin infections, and bloat (also known as gastric torsion or twisted stomach). Bloat is a common health issue to dogs, being the second largest killer of dogs other than cancer. Deep-chested dogs are more susceptible to it.
