The Airedale was developed in the county of Yorkshire, England, in the area between the AIRE and WARFE rivers.
He is the largest and hardiest of all terriers. He is extremely adaptable and through his keen intelligence and great desire to please his owner, he can be taught to do any of the jobs for which certain breeds have been developed and perform them equaly well. You will find in one dog a good-tempered, affectionate companion devoted to his family and duties, a great watch dog, a fine hunting companion and an excellent farm worker. No dog ranks higher in choice for a child's pet: his disposition is absolutely reliable.
