‘Hannah’ hides in corner pretending she can’t be seen at crowded shelter

Hannah hides in the corner at the Riverside Animal Shelter and pretends she can not be seen. A volunteer at the shelter tells the red German shepherd’s heartbreaking story.

“Almost every dog at the shelter tugs our heartstrings, but this one takes the cake. When first approached, Hannah won’t look at you. You can call to her, make noise, but she will continue to stare in the corner.

A few times we’ve found her in the front of her kennel, but the moment she sees us, she gets up and goes to the back of her kennel. She tries to get int the absolute farthest corner possible, and continues to scoot her body even though there’s nowhere else to go.”

Hannah is not aggressive at all. She doesn’t growl nor does she try to bite; she is terrified in the shelter.

Check out her video:

PLEASE SHARE! Urgent! ✨ Almost every dog at the shelter tugs our heartstrings, but this one takes the cake. When first approached, Hannah won’t look at you. You can call to her, make noise, but she will continue to stare in the corner. A few times we’ve found her in the front of her kennel, but the moment she sees us, she gets up and goes to the back of her kennel. She tries to get in the absolute farthest corner possible, and continues to scoot her body even though there’s nowhere else to go. It’s heart wrenching. Shelter staff says this girl avoid contact. She does not growl at them, she does not try to bite them. She is just terrified. Please share her. We really feel that this girl is going to be overlooked.
