Eight week old Airedale Terrier puppies

This video was shot yesterday, and as you’ll see, where down to four Airedale puppies. All the puppies just love to get out in the backyard and run. They have a great time, but they do get tired pretty quick. Then it’s back in the house for a drink of water and a little nap.

Tomorrow, our gal, Ms. yellow, will be leaving for her new forever home up in the Los Angeles area.

Personally, for their size, it’s amazing how fast they can run. I take them off for a walk, except they’ve only had two out of their three shots, and so prefer just to have them in the backyard for now.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Like many terriers, the breed has a ‘broken’ coat, which is hard and wiry. It is meant to be kept not so long as to appear ragged, and lies straight and close, covering body and legs. The outer coat is hard, wiry and stiff, the undercoat softer. The hardest coats are crinkly or just slightly waved. Curly soft coats are highly undesirable.

The coat is hypoallergenic, tending not to generate allergic reactions in people.

Airedales bearing undercoats are generally groomed by hand stripping where a small serrated edged knife is used to pull out loose hair from the dog’s coat. Most Airedales require frequent (6 to 8 weeks) clipping or stripping as they do not shed.

The AKC breed standard states that the correct coat color is either a black saddle, with a tan head, ears and legs; or a dark grizzle saddle (black mixed with gray and white). Grizzle that is a mix of red hair in the black, often on the area of back before the tail are often the best and harshest coats. There are, however, examples of non-standard black-coated and “red” (tan) coated Airedales, (the solid colored Airedales are NOT able to be AKC registered, since they are deviations from breed standard and have yet to be proven ‘purebred’ Airedale Terriers.) There are also the short coated “Redline” type Airedales, they appear to be genetic throwbacks in looks to the Airedale’s early days when the breed’s coats were much shorter than today’s Airedale. Even with their shorter coat they still have the same hard wiry outer coat with a soft under coat and fall well within the criteria of the breed standard and therefore can be AKC registered and most are registered.


He is swift, formidable, graceful, big of brain, an ideal chum and guard. ….To his master he is an adoring pal. To marauders he is a destructive lightning bolt.”
