Possessing a real thought process as well as a sense of humor; Airedales are even capable of pulling practical jokes. Few people appreciate being the objects of gleeful deception, especially by their dog, but that appreciation is one of the basic necessities of owning an Airedale. - From: Is an Airedale for you?

Warland Chief Invader was an Airedale Terrier owned by Charles Eldon Bull. He liked to wander, so his owner arranged for him to have an account with the Yellow Cab Co. They brought him home when they saw him. In 1946, during the Stelco strike, his favourite haunt was the strikers’ tent outside the gate where he was assured of company, day or night. “Chief has slowed down during the last year and his cab bills have dropped steadily. He is 9 years old, having been born on D Day, June 7, 1944.”
