Love, love, love the Airedale! They require grooming but they are so worth it. They love children and were the true nanny dog. Lots of stories of farmers using these dogs to babysit the kids at the end of the row while the adults worked in the field. Gentle and kind but brave and strong. They held predators at bay until the farmer could get his gun but did not fear the adversary and would attack if need be. Airedales are not slouches. Fun, healthy, wonderful dogs. Very loving dogs.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

After the First World War, the Airedales’ popularity rapidly increased thanks to stories of their bravery on the battlefield and also because Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, and Warren Harding owned Airedales. President Harding’s Airedale, Laddie Boy, was the “first celebrity White House pet”. President Harding had a special chair hand carved for him to sit on at very important Cabinet meetings. In the 1920s, the Airedale became the most popular breed in the USA.

President Roosevelt claimed that “An Airedale can do anything any other dog can do and then lick the other dog, if he has to.”

1949 marked the peak of the Airedales’ popularity in the USA, ranked 20th out of 110 breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club.
