CAPE CORAL, Fla. — A dog found emaciated and full of scars is recovering at the Cape Coral Animal Shelter.

Shelter officials said they received an emergency request for help from animal control in a nearby county on Friday.

After a restful night, the shelter said Billy was eating and wagging his tail for the first time in a long time the following day.

Officials said this is still a criminal case, so further details are not available at this time.
