"The Airedale is the largest of the British Terriers. They weigh 25Ð30 kilograms (55Ð66 lb) and have a height at the withers of 58Ð61 centimetres (23Ð24 in) for dogs, with females slightly smaller. The American Kennel Club standard specifies a smaller dog. Larger Airedales, up to 55 kilograms (121 lb) can be found in North America. They are often called ""Oorangs."" This was the name of a kennel in Ohio in the early 1900s.
The Airedale has a medium-length black and tan coat with a harsh topcoat and a soft undercoat. They are an alert and energetic breed, ""not aggressive but fearless.""It has been claimed that the large ""hunting"" type or Oorang Airedales are more game than the smaller ""show"" type Airedales. The large type are usually used for big game hunting and as family guardians or as pets, but usually do poorly in AKC conformation shows. This larger type is also significantly more prone to Hip Dysplasia than the standard Airedales."
