Airedale terrier

The Airedale Terrier (often shortened to ‘Airedale’), also known as Bingley terrier and Waterside terrier, is a dog breed of the terrier type that originated in the valley (dale) of the River Aire, in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is traditionally called the King of Terriers because it is the largest of the terrier breeds. The Airedale was bred from a Welsh terrier and an Otterhound and probably some other Terrier breeds, originally to hunt otters. In Britain this breed has also been used as a war dog, guide dog and police dog.

Kim has owned four terriers to date: Jessica (2004-2016), Beau (since November 2015), Raine (2018-2020) and Misty (since September 2020).
