From Jack Doll:

Attached is a photo of Rosannabandana aka "The Rose" riding in her PT
Cruiser with her Doggles on (have to protect those eyes). The Rose is a 9
year old Airedale, a big Airedale, she stands 30 inches at the shoulders (8
inches taller than the standard). She loves snow, riding in the car, chasing
anything that will run from her and afternoon naps in the shade. She had the
energy of a puppy until last year. Now she act like a normal young dog. I've
never had a better friend then "the Rose".

Thanks for sending in your Airdale Terrier Pictures Jack.




How They Measure Up:

The Airdale is part of the Terrier Group.

Height: averages 23 inches (male); averages 21 inches (female).
Size: Medium.
Weight: 50 to 60 pounds (male); 45 to 55 (female).

History:


The Airedale was named for the Valley of the Aire in England, where lots of small game flourished. Originally known as the Waterside Terrier and used as a vermin hunter, the breed was later crossed with the Otterhound to make him a better swimmer. In addition to his role as a small game hunter, the Airedale has been used to hunt big game in Africa, India and Canada, and as a police dog, and army sentry dog in World War II. Today the Airedale Terrier is primarily a companion dog.

Coat
Should be hard, dense and wiry, lying straight and close, covering the dog well over the body and legs. Some of the hardest are crinkling or just slightly waved. At the base of the hard very stiff hair should be a shorter growth of softer hair termed the undercoat.

Color
The head and ears should be tan, the ears being of a darker shade than the rest. Dark markings on either side of the skull are permissible. The legs up to the thighs and elbows and the under-part of the body and chest are also tan and the tan frequently runs into the shoulder. The sides and upper parts of the body should be black or dark grizzle. A red mixture is often found in the black and is not to be considered objectionable. A small white blaze on the chest is a characteristic of certain strains of the breed.

Size
Dogs should measure approximately 23 inches in height at the shoulder; bitches, slightly less. Both sexes should be sturdy, well muscled and boned.
