Airedale Terrier

Airedale Terriers originated from eighteenth-century Yorkshire, England in the regions of Airedale and Wharfedale. They are believed to be the descendants of the Old English Black-and-Tan Terrier, the Broken-Coated Working Terrier and the Rough-Coated Black-and-Tan Terrier. The breed was originally developed to guard against vermin, such as mice and rats.
