At Longvue Airedales, we are breeding Airedales that are descendents of generations of our breeding program. We began breeding in 2003 using the last remaining Buckshot dam - Ch. Buckshot Volcano (Smoke) - who produced the first Longvue Champion - Ch. Longvue Card Shark (Casey) who was WB during the MCKC weekend. Seeking to enrich our breeding program, we added Saredon bloodlines with Eng. & Am. Ch. Saredon Wheels of Fire (Patsy). We consider Patsy our "foundation" and almost every dog we breed or exhibit today can trace their origins back to her. We continue to selectively add dogs from other lines to maintain genetic diversity. This careful breeding and blending has created "our line" - Airedales known for outstanding breed type, excellent temperaments and good health. They are "pretty" but more importantly, they are loving companions in the home and enthusiastic competitors in conformation and performance activities.
Beginning with Patsy, the First Generation of descendents featured Jax and Joker -outstanding show dogs and producers. Jax is now 12!
The Second Generation featured Jessie and Jaxson who have produced outstanding pups for Longvue and other breeders. Our latest star Saylor (GCh. Longvue Up the Ante) was sired by Jax and is also second generation. He is a breeder-owner handled multiple Group winner and a BIS winner and is currently ranked number 5 among Airedales.
Our Third Generation Champions include Jazz Man, Jake, Jenna, Lotus, Trevor, Trudy and Tony.
Our Fourth Generation has already produced one Champion - Savannah.
m is a Grand Champion. We are proud of our latest Longvue Champion
- Longvue Limited Edition (Lotus). Lotus finished at the SVATA Regional Supported Entry with a 5 point major and was BOS at the SVATA Regional Specialty her first time as a special.
"Generation After Generation"
In the past 16 years, Longvue has established a predictable breeding program known for dogs with good looks, outstanding temperaments and good health. This is our goal for every pup we breed or exhibit.
