A skeletal dog named "Emily," is heading for home this weekend...not back to her prior, neglectful owners, but to a new family in Michigan.
Earlier this month, the skeletal, seven-year-old Chow mix was saved from the Miami-Dade Animal Services facility in Miami, Fla., where she had arrived in such horrific shape that she was literally near death.
Emily has been given the okay for travel from her veterinarian, and Patricia Ford, the individual who is transporting her, is taking care to ensure that the trip will be as comfortable as possible.
Ford shared the exciting news with the National Dog News Examiner on Thursday night:
I wanted you to know that Emily is traveling to me in MI this weekend to my home and will flourish in a home environment, her page will have many updates and pics, I love taking pics
