Species group: Mixed Breeds
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.
All mixed breeds are individuals but if you have a dog that appears to be mostly Airedale Terrier, you're looking at a dog carrying DNA from one of the most highly regarded terrier breeds. This intelligent, energetic mix does best with an alpha owner who can provide the dog with lots of exercise and something interesting to do.
Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but in general with the Airedale Terrier mix you can expect a larger terrier that demands lots of exercise to channel its energy.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the Airedale Terrier in the mix means you'll be getting a lot of the strong-minded terrier personality. Outdoorsy owners who love hiking, hunting, and training their dog will likely get the best out of this mix. A bored dog could become a destructive dog.
