Meet Caley! .... Caley's Story
Orlando, FL - The benign email from a shelter about a "skinny dog" did little to prepare a volunteer for one emaciated Boxer's condition.
Florida Boxer Rescue pulled Caley from the shelter where she had been housed after being picked up as a stray.
When Caley first arrived, she was crawling in fleas - so many fleas, in fact, that it took two treatments to kill them all.
The ailing Boxer was also found to be anemic (thanks in part to the blood-sucking fleas) and dehydrated.
