An ailing puppy, in need of medical attention, is desperately in need of help. The 10-month-old female puppy was taken in at the Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services facility in Houston, Texas, on September 29.
The ailing pup
The puppy is suffering from an uncomfortable skin condition which needs to be treated. On Sunday, the Facebook page, Harris County Animal Shelter Pets In Need posted a video of the puppy and wrote:
