Country of Origin: England
View our Airedale Terrier pictures.

The Airedale Terrier has a rough outter coat like most terriers that is almost like a softer version of a wire brush. The undercoat of the Airedale Terrier is actually quite soft. When full grown it can weight up to 70 pounds making it the largest breed of terrier. In years gone by its primary purpose was to help their owners in the hunt for otters. It has also been used in the hunt of many other animals including ducks, hare and rabbits because it is a fast, strong dog that can be taught a variety of skills. It was also used to assist police officers before the German Shepard took over this role.
