The Airedale's Heritage

The Airedale came to America shortly after its development in England. In the first part of the 20th century, Americans' appreciation of the Airedale's hunting heritage was summarized in 1916 by Warren H. Miller (longtime editor of Field and Stream) in his classic book "The American Hunting Dog":

"The Airedale

is the King

of all

Sporting

Dogs"

in the 1860's the Airedale Terrier was developed for the farmers in the Valley of Aire (Yorkshire, England) to be "the do-it-all hunter". The region's hearty people needed a dog with a keen hunting instinct and a weather-resistant coat; the character to tenaciously stick to any job; the courage and ability to kill all manner of game; the capability and desire to guard his family and home; and the gentleness and sensitivity to live as part of the family household.

"On the borderline between the bird dog and the fur dog stands the Airedale",

wrote Warren H. Miller, "...the dog that can hunt both ... and the one who can and is being successfully trained to hunt everything alive that can be hunted."
