Update 5/20/14: Rescued! New name is "Nate." Please click here to find his newly created Facebook page.

A darling, five-month-old boxer mix puppy is in desperate need of help - the pup, known only as ID#A405925, has been at the Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services facility in Houston, Texas, since May 14, and tomorrow is his "review date."

According the the facility, the puppy is available for a "medical rescue" because he appears to be injured. The pup is thin, has atrophied muscles and cannot walk - the root cause of the pup's problem is unknown; the facility does not have an x-ray machine.

Please take a moment to network on this pup's behalf.
