We are now looking for a retirement home for Nicky
OK, what’s retirement? When a dog is finished with their “career” multiple dog owners like myself will sometimes look for a place where an adult can kick back and be an only dog or maybe one of two dogs. I confess that I am a *slight* Airedale hoarder! We are home here to several Airedales and I think they get lots more attention by locating someone that wants just them.
How about some info on Nicky? Well, his stats are like this:
Born: June 12, 2008 Hips: OFA Certified
Registry: AKC Sex: Male (to be neutered)
Health status: Excellent and up to date until May 2015, Weighs about 60-65 pounds
Reg. Name: Ikarus von Garnsee (Call Name: NICKY) German Import
Sire: International CH No Doubt of Malton HD-F (hips certified), IPO III, Champion in 12 countries,
Dam: Klub U. KFT Jugend Sieger CH Espe Vom
Personality: Very affectionate and outgoing. Walks on lead without pulling and doesn’t jump up on people unless encouraged to do so. He loves to be a prancing show off when walked 😉
Enjoys good appetite (understatement-he has always wanted to be a fat dog but I keep him to a MEASURED amount of food) and eats neatly but when drinking, water drips from beard (it’s an Airedale thing). If you give him a big deep bucket of water, he sticks his whole head under water sometimes. He LOVES rubs behind the ear. Enjoys other dogs if they aren’t too rough in playing; doesn’t like other dominant dogs.
Trained to be crated while you are away and I would recommend that to be safe and to avoid miscommunication about when he needs to go out in a new environment. Copes happily with loud noisy environment–rowdy parties, new loud people, construction/remodeling in the house, stuff like that.
Fall back retirement job: He might be a wonderful therapy dog as he is SO gentle.
Price: Like the commercial says, priceless…..to the right person who can love him like he deserves. Call and we can talk about it–330-666-2004
