we have raised Airedales since 1977,but are starting a new breeding business with new bloodlines. Our dogs are country raised and of the 'large' variety. Our male, Boudan, is 70 pounds and 25 in at the shoulder, the female, Bella, is 58 pounds and 23 at the shoulder. They are the standard black and tan. We have one to two litters a year at this time. These can be hunters and kill dogs or just family pets. They love people and can be handled in public situations as well.
