Retirement for Nicky

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.

American and Canadian CH Ikarus Vom Garnsee, German Import, Owner Handled Group winner


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
Porta-berg HDF-A1

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… the right person who can love him like he deserves. Call and we can talk about it–330-666-2004
