Florida animal care officials made a horrifying discovery finding a dog locked in a small cage covered in mange. Capt. Dave Walesky said a man was checking on his property Saturday morning when he found the female year old pit bull mix near his gate. The poor dog was in the direct heat and is considered lucky to be alive. Mites were also are attacking her skin.
“They’re very painful, they’re itchy, they’re scratchy. It’s a very miserable condition for this animal,” Walesky said.
Authorities continue to look for the owner while the dog is getting better and they hope one day soon to adopt her out.
