How the different breeds of dogs originated
The good-natured, playful Airedale makes a good friend for a
child yet he will stand up to any dog who wants to start a fight.
Airedales are big dogs and like a big yard for exercise.
The coat is harsh and wiry. The dead coat
is best pulled out by
hand. Hand stripping and regular brushing help to maintain the coat. Some people
like to use clippers on the back and neck to keep the coat short but this
removes the correct wiry feel of the coat. Longer hair is left on the legs and
Colour: Black and tan, or grizzle and tan.
Height at shoulder: dogs 56 - 61 cms, bitches 56 - 59

|The King of Terriers can be so meek! So quiet at times we hardly know he is there!
Jesus was like that - He told his friends, "Tell folk, 'Look! Your King is coming so meekly...'" Matthew Chapter 21 verse 5. Let's remember we are in the presence of a King at all times!
