Barely two-months-old and surrendered to the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center on Monday by her owner, Tiny retreated into a corner trembling in fear; her diminutive size made the kennel she tried to disappear in seem even larger. Even as the shelter staff and visitors walked by and tried to get her attention, Tiny wedged herself into the corner even tighter. Treats had been strewn on the floor, but Tiny was just too scared to move. When local volunteer and photographer, John Hwang spotted her, all he wanted to do was to comfort her.
“When I saw her, I went up to the fence and slowly lay down on the floor. She watched me for a while, and then all of sudden she cautiously walked up to the fence. At first she studied my face, then she scooted her back right up to me, and she stayed right by me. Later a kind shelter worker came over and took her to a more suitable kennel for puppies. I could see how much she longed to be held,” sadly described John.
