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.

In a word, Caley was a mess.

Technically, since Caley was just saved from the shelter, she is still a mess - though her many issues are currently being addressed at a veterinary clinic.

By tomorrow, tests which are being run on this suffering dog should reveal if Caley has an underlying problem, or if she was purposefully starved.

The Florida Boxer Rescue has set up a donation page for Caley - something to help off-set the many expenses which will be associated with saving her life.
