A severely burned Labrador retriever, estimated at just one year of age, was brought in to BARC, the City of Houston, Texas, Animal Shelter on Wednesday.
The dog is in desperate need of medical attention and though his stray hold is not up until Feb. 24, he is available for an early medical release.
Amazingly, despite the massive injuries to this pup's body, the shelter reports that he is still friendly.
Rescues who are able to assist this dog with the care that he so desperately needs are asked to email: BARC.AID@HOUSTONTX.GOV
