Surrendered dog spent holiday curled up in corner of her kennel cage

A heartbroken and scared puppy had been surrendered to the Orange County Animal Services in Orlando, Florida just days before Thanksgiving. She spent her holiday curled up in the corner of her kennel cage with her head down and just so scared.

Meet 12-month-old Monaco who weighs only 14 pounds: (A443512)

“…is so precious … cute as a button … but you can feel her fear. She looks around confused, like she doesn’t understand why she was dropped off at the shelter. The unfamiliar setting, being in a cage, all the barking dogs around her.. she looked up with these ‘help me’ eyes, and our hearts sank,” a volunteer with Friends of Orlando Shelter Pets posted on social media hoping to attract attention to this little dog’s plight.

Monaco is good with other dogs and is heartworm positive. She is not leash trained. (Heartworm treatment is available and most dogs recover completely if caught in time.)
