Hi,

Does anyone know of anybody breeding good hunting airedales?  I am on several of the airedale boards and I am just trying to find out who else is out there breeding or running airedales.  Whether they are running coon, hogs or whatever.  I appreciate your time and knowledge.

My brother runs a big male airdale cross. He's half walker half airdale. He is a damn good strike dog just not gritty. But if there is hogs around he will find them and let out the loudest hound bark you have ever heard.  He could be up for sale soon. He is trying to get a grittier pack started.

Caught hog.

The strength of the pack is in the dog, the strength of the dog is in the pack.

 I had a Airedale that we ran with our walker bear hounds and that dog would put anything up a tree. He was a mean bear fighting SOB.

Ben,

Do you still have him?  Do you remember the breeding or breeder that produced him?

Thanks,

I thought there was  group in Full Cry Magazine that had a monthly column devoted to hunting strains of Airdales, I used to run them and had a Orang strain from Tenn  kennel, they have to be sheared down here in south texas but there are some 85 pound females if u get into the actually hunted strains, they also are terrible about getting into  river to cool off down here and it makes them gator bait in the summer if your hunting grain feilds and they go down to cool off in the river, they will strike and bay and catch as good as any dog actually, it whats u are happy with, we used to cross them with Black Mouth curs when the male got ate by the gator, i had them for years until the 3 females all died off, good luck.  Dont buy any small show dog strain for sure.

There was a guy in Cross Plains that had some Airedale/Plott pups up to give away. I went over there and picked one up he is a little stand offish not shy really just don't wanna be handled. Just by the way he acts now he's gonna be gritty and very independent.

The guy I hunt with had one a few years ago. I am not sure where he got him but he was a pretty good dog. He was kind of hot and cold--sometimes really good and sometimes not so good.

He was gritty and hard to cut.

I had one great one.  Easy handling, dog friendly, all around good dog.  He was a long range, cold nose trail dog, and mean.  This dog was around 65-70 lbs.  I would love to find another one.  Don't look at the big ones.  Buy a set of shears before you buy the dog.  The good shears will cost $100 or more.  I made a mistake by not trimming mine.
Most of the Airedales I have seen are show bred giants and useless in the woods.  Someone on Traditional working airedales forum, can find you a hunting airedale.  The prices are not hunter prices though.  Mine was free and was out of Georgia.  It was a registered dog, but since it was free I didn't get the papers.

Mine tore up every hog he found and killed the smaller ones out right.  He would fight and tear at a hog rather than catch or bay it.  He died of a heat stroke in Florida, doing just that.  The temperature was in the 70's that day.
