A very sturdy, hardy looking dog, the Airedale Terrier is among the biggest of the terrier breeds weighing up to 45kgs. An Airedale's outer coat is thick, hard and wiry, whereas the Airedales' undercoat should be softer. They are usually black and tan in colour. 

With a "Fearless & Majestic appearance" the Airedale Terrier is a strong-willed breed of dog. Along with these typical character traits are stubborness, independance, and highly intelligent.

Lifespan of the Airedale is around 11 years. Common problems with Airedales are hip-displasia, dermatitis and they have been known to bloat, caused primarily from excercising straight after a meal, without a rest.
