We expect puppies about June 7th. While we wait, please browse our history and earlier posts recommending books to prepare for your new puppy. We can also introduce you to the family–starting with the dad’s side!
Earlier this year, I traveled to Massachusetts to visit Stirling Airedales who is captained by Susan Rodgers, who started her Airedales in the 1950’s. You can read more about the story of the trip here.
While I was there, I met “Marcus” and was greatly impressed by him. He finished his titled during the most competitive weekend of the year at our annual National Specialty at Montgomery County Kennel Club! At that time, I hoped to return in a few months and bring Vega with me to breed to Marcus. (At the time, I was there with Merci for Champion Stirling Wildside Mighty Monty, resulting in our April litter.
So then, fast forward to April and we find that there are travel bans in effect and the return trip to MA is not possible. As you know, an Airedale who begins the biological process for breeding cannot be delayed, postponed, or reasoned with! I began to search and research with a time deadline of 10 days to figure it out–and found an excellent choice!
The sire is Am Champion BAJANAIRE AIRERUN SOUND THE TRUMPET OFA AT-5903G28M-VPI and OFA Good. “Gabriel” is a finished son of an well known east coast dog, Am. Can. Ch. Stirling Walk on the Wildside “Marcus” OFA AT-5537E31M-PI and OFA Excellent). His mother is CH Bajanaire Like A Bleu Aire Rose “Rosie” OFA AT-5496G25F-VPI and OFA Good). Gabe is in the large pic plus gaiting in the ring and his sire, Marcus, on the bottom center, dam, Rosie, on the bottom right. Gabe lives in NE Ohio, luckily for us due to the travel bans and quarantine.
The dam is our “Vega” (Seneca Vega Harp Star OFA AT-5709G25F-VPI and OFA Good), a daughter of Ch. Darbywood’s Baraboo of Singing Hills, National Specialty winner. Vega has generations of working German lines on the maternal side. I will feature Vega and her family in the next post.
Naturally, we can’t tell what sexes or how many puppies are on the way as yet. It will be early August before we have any puppies old enough to travel.
Seneca Airedales are located at 1814 North Revere Rd, Akron, OH 44333. For more information, please direct your inquiries to our email: email@example.com or by phone: 330-666-2004. We have also listed this litter on our Breeder of Merit page on AKC Marketplace.
