Rescue story
Meet Duncan

Text by Debbie Butler, rescue volunteer.

Duncan came from an animal shelter in southern North Carolina where he was picked up as a stray. He had numerous wounds; too many to really count. It was apparent that he had been in quite the fight with another animal.  

When we did his chest X-rays we discovered that his chest was full of buck shot.  I cringe when I try to imagine what his story might be.

Duncan is one of the worst dogs we have seen this year in rescue and we’ve seen some dogs in pretty bad shape.  He was heartworm positive and has completed that treatment and is now in his forever home. 

Text and photos by Tracy Olson, Duncan's adopted human mom.

Here are a few tidbits about Duncan's new life with us.  I cannot begin to thank you enough for placing him with us.  He matches our personality perfectly!

Duncan is a jack of all trades.  He is a clown, a detective, a showman, and a cuddlebug.  Everyone takes notice of him.  He is tall and lanky, unbelievably friendly, and people are drawn to him.  
He is at ease wherever he is:  the car, the vets office, doggie daycare, or napping on his bed. 
Everything is an adventure to Duncan.  He is full of love,curiosity, and of course mischief-paper towels beware!
As soon as the collar and leash are on, so is he! He prances, hunts (cats, squirrels, and whatever happens to be moving, even crape myrtle blossoms), and of course struts his stuff. 
He has a 14 year old Lab sister, Savannah, who has shown him the ropes of living in this new place, and he has become her "keeper".   
We are so thankful to Airedale Rescue for taking him in, fixing him up, and for letting him become a part of our family.  

just drive! quit looking at cute me!

     Duncan has landed in a life of luxury.
