The Delaware SPCA is looking for the public's help in identifying the owner of a wounded dog pulled from the water over the weekend.The dog, a boxer believed to be about three years old, was found by firefighters in the Brandywine Creek shortly after 11:00 p.m. Saturday.

Rescuers were called out for a dog in distress, and found the dog at the edge of the water against a 20 foot wall.

The boxer, now being called "Cammy," was rescued and examined at Windcrest Animal Hospital. She was found to have a broken hip and broken foot that will require surgery.

The injuries are believed to be about two to three months old.

SPCA animal control officers believe the dog's owner possibly didn't have the money for the medical treatment and dumped her.

Cammy also has scarring on her face that may have been caused by chemicals or toxins.

An organization called "Adopt-a-Boxer" will take over care of Cammy once she's released from the hospital.

Cammy's surgery is scheduled for Tuesday at the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary Hospital in Philadelphia.
