The Airedale terrier is the tallest terrier and, as such, is often referred to as the “king of terriers.” Medium-sized terriers were prized by Yorkshire hunters for hunting game such as water rats and foxes. In the mid-1800s, some terriers around the River Aire in South Yorkshire were crossed with otterhounds to enhance their hunting ability around water, as well as scenting ability. The result of the crossbreeding was a dog adept at otter hunting, originally called the Bingley or Waterside terrier which was later recognized as the Airedale terrier in 1878.............
