In his free time, William D. Jones, MD, enjoys spending time with his Airedale Terrier puppy Cooper.
Described by the American Kennel Club as “friendly,” “clever,” and “courageous,” the Airedale Terrier is widely regarded as the “King of Terriers.” The breed originated in the Aire Valley of Yorkshire, England, where its original purpose was to catch ducks and rats in regional rivers.
The Airedale Terrier subsequently proved itself as an able sporting and working dog that aided in hunting and even performed British military service during World War I. Today, the breed is known as an excellent family pet with an extremely kid-friendly reputation. When it comes to strangers, however, Airedale Terriers are always on alert. This makes the large and confident breed an excellent choice for home protection.
