Airedale Terrier Links:

The Airedale Terrier originates from the Aire Valley in the United Kingdom. Their name was adopted in 1879 at the Bingley Show in the UK and the first breed standards were  produced the same year. The first examples of the breed in South Africa were exhibited at a show in Cape Town in 1889. Airedale Terriers were bred for hunting along riverbeds and across the Yorkshire moors. During the 1st World War Airedales were used for sentry and guard duty as well as carrying messages.

An Airedale Terrier is a good-sized dog with a personality to match. They are self-confident, playful, intelligent, exuberant
and a natural leader with a hunting instinct which remains strong to this day.

Lekana Airedales use proven bloodlines such as Albenor, Danbecka, Von der Locher Muehle, Buxton and Stargus to breed hip displasia free dogs, registered by the Kennel Union of South Africa (KUSA).
