Seeing Schuck, you wouldn't believe that she is half Airedale, but the nose, drive, and the need to get into a bramble is the same as her dam's. I usually spend all evening picking thorns out of her hide :D She's not fast, but fast enough to catch rabbits on the lamp and other stuff.

She looks a cracker penny. The thing I like about your airdale is that it also has the ability to kill any vermin that it stumbles across. I really fancy a spaniel for bushing, and also retrieving as I do a bit of shooting, not game but Rimfire and rough shooting. But I offen wonder how a spaniel would react if it bumped into a fox in cover and got bit?

A fox will usually always run away from any dog, if the opportunity is there for it to do so, so I wouldn't worry about it.. :thumbs: A bloke I know used to flush foxes from cover to the gun with a border terrier and a springer spaniel, they used to work well together. Think about how many working springers there are out in the UK, they wouldn't be so popular if they couldn't at least handle the occasional encounter with a fox now and again! :laugh::thumbs:

I meant the airedale sorry. To another airdale

If I knew enough sensible people would take a pup on, then yes, but the last time I enquired when I was trying to persuade Ian (the original breeder/importer) we could only come up with 4 definites: and you know how 'definites' have a habit of disappearing when the time comes to take a pup. I would love to breed a litter of Airedales from her, but the last two litters of lurchers I bred didn't all end up (eventually) in the type of homes I'd have liked. I wouldn't be happy to hear of a pup passed on by its first birthday because the owners didn't have time/changed jobs/got divorced etc etc. I know you can never say anything is for ever, but I don't like thinking that I may have had some part in putting yet more dogs on the pass-around treadmill.

 

If I could get enough genuine, vouched for, dedicated dog men and women who really wanted a working bred Airedale above all else, then maybe.
