From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

The Airedale is the largest of the British terriers. They weigh 19–25 kilograms (42–55 lb) in fit condition and have a height at the withers of 58–61 centimetres (23–24 in) for males, with females slightly smaller. The American Kennel Club standard specifies a very slightly smaller dog. Larger Airedales, up to 55 kilograms (121 lb) can sometimes be found in North America. They are sometimes referred to as “Oorangs” as this was the name of a kennel in Ohio in the early 1900s that produced this much larger variation, or Roosevelt Terriers.

The Airedale has a medium-length black and tan coat with a harsh topcoat and a soft undercoat. They are an alert and energetic breed, “not aggressive but fearless.” It has been claimed that the larger “Oorang” type Airedales are more eager than the smaller, breed standard Airedales, but this is not necessarily so. The large type have been used for big game hunting and as family guardians or as pets, but usually do poorly in AKC (American Kennel Club) conformation shows.


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.”

  1. My father raised large airedales years ago. I loved them, they weren’t called oolongs or mountain airedales, they were just large airedales. 100 lbs was average and we still have the rod iron digh that showed “Reusche” with the Airdale figure. I have really missed seeing the sweet, strong big kids.
    My parents were in Arroyo Grande, Calif.
    Really looking for their descendents but can’t find the old line. Just remembered my Mom named them after bible characters. “Sampson”, ” Delilah” etc.
    Any suggestions on finding that amazing bloodline?
