Description: The Airedale Terrier is known as the "king of terriers." They excel in agility, eyesight, hearing and have untiring courage.

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.

History: The Airedale Terrier was originally known as the Waterside Terrier and sometimes the Bingley Terrier. Named after the Valley of Aire in Yorkshire, England, where they derived from crossing the old English black and tan terrier with the Otterhound in the mid-1800s. They hunted otter, fox, weasel, badger and water rat in England. The breeders of the Airedale wanted a breed that would be a large terrier willing to go to water if needed. The Airedale was used in the 19th century for big game hunting, vermin killing and police and military work. They were used in Africa, India and North America for hunting. When they were shown in classes in the Airedale Agricultural Show in 1879, their name was born: Airedale Terrier, due to the immense amount of Waterside Terriers shown. The dogs were previously known as Waterside, Bingley, or Working Terriers, depending on where they lived. The agricultural show unified the breed. The son of Ch. Master Briar was exported to the U.S. in the early 20th century. They aided in World War II, and today are a popular breed still.
