Sum­mersea Car­ly of Willaire X Ch Indus Cap­tain Cana­da at Peluche. She has a hip score B2-B2, ED00She has made an impres­sive debut in the ring — win­ning best pup­py in breed and doing well in pup­py group plac­ings! She achieved her first CC on her first out­ing at sev­en months, and RBOB — out­shin­ing her com­pe­ti­tion. She was award­ed Best of Breed at 14 months of age, and gained her cham­pi­on sta­tus at 19 months.

Ch. Jaideld The Luck Of A Gyp­sy of Willaire (Imp UK): “Gyp­sy” 

Jaideld The Luck of a Gypsy of Willaire

Jaideld The Luck of a Gyp­sy of Willaire

This much antic­i­pat­ed pup joined us in May 2016 and has made a good start in the show ring .. She has an impres­sive her­itage and we have to thank Alaine and Mar­tin Lock­ett for send­ing her to us. She is from Sare­don From A Jack to a King X The Wilder­ness JP Gyp­sy Lady at Jaideld and has a hip score B1-B1. Gyp­sy gained her cham­pi­on sta­tus on 13/11/2017.

Willaire Keynote: “Jas­mine” is a pup from our “K” Lit­ter — from Ch. Vivav­ick Jubilee Jester of Kir­su­da X Willaire Image.

Willaire King Tut: “Rufus” is anoth­er pup from our “K” lit­ter — a love­ly lit­tle boy from Ch. Vivav­ick Jubilee Jester of Kir­su­da X Willaire Image.

We are watch­ing how these pups devel­op with inter­est, and will show soon.

Much loved dogs that have passed on:

Ch. Willaire Hall­mark: “Cae­sar” was an impres­sive young man from Ch. Sum­mersea Car­ly of Willaire X Ch Ch(Can) Indus Curteis Point at Peluche. Nation­al Airedale 2016, top Airedale for 2015, he had a hip score A2-A2, ED00 and had a love­ly nature — lost in a hit and run when he escaped through a faulty gate, and is real­ly missed.

Willaire Her High­ness: “Can­dy” was a love­ly girl from Ch. Sum­mersea Car­ly of Willaire X Ch Ch(Can) Indus Curteis Point at Peluche - lost trag­i­cal­ly after a freak acci­dent. She had only one lit­ter — pups going to Kenya, Botswana, Cape.. She had an A2-A2 hip score 

Ch. Sum­mersea Car­ly of Willaire: ‘Waf­fle’ was a love­ly girlie who typ­i­fied gIMG_7907ood South African breed­ing, and who was a descen­dant of my first bitch. She had a love­ly nature – would lick you to death, yet was will­ing to die defend­ing you from intrud­ers!

She had achieved cham­pi­on sta­tus fair­ly eas­i­ly and had an A2-A2 hip score.

Airedale Terrier (Joub-Joub)

Lihan­ton Miss Tiffany of Willaire: ‘Joub-Joub’ did well in the ring, achiev­ing a num­ber of Pup­py awards, and chal­lenge cer­tifi­cates. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, when her hips were X-Rayed we found she was not suit­able for breed­ing, so had her spayed. Her show career was cut short, but she was the apple of my husband’s eye, a delight­ful fam­i­ly mem­ber and is sad­ly missed.

Mag­w­era Olive: “Gam­bit” was a girlie which we decid­ed not to breed as she was on the small side, but was a val­ued mem­ber of our house­hold.

Kepalin Thorin: “Dou­gal” was our first boy — a fine lad that sired some love­ly, well-bal­anced lit­ters.

Dul­wich Geor­gian: “Muf­fet” was our first airedale. After mov­ing up to Gaut­eng from Natal, we showed her occa­sion­al­ly, gain­ing a num­ber of chal­lenge cer­tifi­cates — but we failed to make her up to cham­pi­on sta­tus. She pro­duced a num­ber of lit­ters in the 1980’s. Muf­fet was bred by Eve Grig­gs, and was an amaz­ing dog with a won­der­ful tem­pera­ment… we were now thor­ough­ly hooked on Airedales!
