Layla (Airedale Shepherd) by Sharon Hurst:
She is just a little over a year and has been raise around our 10 year hairless chihuahua. Today the Airedale/ shepherd brutally and fatally attacked the little dog then growled at me. I don't think she will be staying any longer here.

Leeloo (Airedale Shepherd) by Mildred Sandoval:
I adopted Leeloo at ten weeks old. I just received the results of a DNA test. She is Airedale terrier and German Shepard . She looks like a German Shepard. Her hair is not curly or rough. At four months she will sit, lay down, come, shake hands, play fetch ,and much more. I find she is a fast learner. I must be careful what I teach her. As a small puppy I would hold her on the couch now she is over 30 pounds and wants to be on the couch. She has a high prey drive. She wants to chase cats. She is very talkie. She will go out of her way to interact with me. Loves to play. I walk her at least once a day at least one hour a day. Some times I walk her for one and a half hours. She is very friendly with other dogs and people.
