Local photographer John Hwang, who often photographs shelter pets in need, heard about the little Chihuahua and went to visit him at the shelter - where he jumped up against the bars of his cell and put his paws together, almost as if begging for someone to help him.
"He stood on his hind legs and clasped his front paws together. Up and down, up and down, he shook his paws towards anyone that came by, as if pleading, begging for his freedom," Hwang wrote in a Facebook post.
The sweet dog clearly knows that he does not belong in a cage, or a parking lot. He wants a loving home, and isn't afraid to ask anyone who passes by. The little guy is still so young, and deserves a loving home where he can grow and play.
