Because Quincey and I are from Oklahoma....we have a soft spot for this story.

Maybe you all have seen this....if not there are a few dales that need help. I'm assuming it's for real...Sorry I don't know how to add the pictures. But you can click on the link below.

This is a heartbreaking story.

In Oklahoma, a man surrendered 3 Airedales to rescue (I’m going to give him a teensy tiny bit of credit for at least surrendering and not dumping them into a shelter). The two lovely females are both heavily pregnant, and the male is the daddy. It appears that these dogs have been used as puppy-making machines based on the history of the man. The three dogs have lived their lives in a filthy outdoor kennel and have had litter after litter of puppies. They have no social skills and are petrified right now.

This lovely girl-Dale-mama is Pearl:

Pearl is 7, and she is also Lily’s mama. Isn’t she gorgeous? She’s just about to have her fine Dale babies. No puppies for Pearl yet, but she is heartworm negative (yes!), both ears are infected, she has whipworms, and is in need of a dental.

And this pretty girl-Dale-mama is Lily:

Lily is 5, and is one of Pearl’s babies. She is due to have her pups at the end of February.

This is Crockett, super-Dale-dad.

Poor guy, must be scared out of his mind. And then a bath? Geez… Crockett is a beautiful boy, and the father of both girl-Dales litters.

Got some cash? They sure could use it right now. We could only spare a little, but every little bit adds up.

Here is a direct Paypal link to help out these sweet Dales: For Pearl, Lily, Crockett & their Pups
