Quinn -  Before
 Quinn was turned over to OKAR along with his parents. He was infested with fleas and ticks and weighed in at only 7.2 lbs. Not good for an 8-week old puppy. After being treated for all the bugs and given lots of good food and love, Quinn is now living the good life with his Mom, Dad, and cat.

Quinn-After with love and good care from Rescue
It's hard enough to see adult dogs in this condition, but to see a puppy in such a state is horrendous.

Duncan and Robin came into Oklahoma Airedale Rescue (OKAR_ along with their eight-week old puppy, Quinn. They were a breeder pair and lived outside with 9 or 10 other dogs. When they arrived, they were filthy and covered with fleas and ticks. They both had tick disease and had to be treated. Robin had a 2-hour spay surgery due to excessive bleeding and a rip in her uterus. Duncan was neutered and got infected, so was a guest at the vet hospital for a few days so he could be closely monitored. Now that Robin and Duncan are feeling better, they are waiting for their forever homes. Both have that carefree Airedale attitude that we all love!

Robin and Duncan - Groomed!
Duncan and Robin have a $900 vet bill for the extensive work they received. They were spayed/neutered, given vaccinations, and had bloodwork done to determine that they were positive for tick disease. Miraculously, they were negative for heartworm.
