A terrified stray arrived at the Harris County Animal Shelter on November 1. No one knows what happened, but she was found in the 77039 zip code. Terrified at the shelter, she timidly jumps up and holds on to a volunteer’s leg for comfort.

This little Chihuahua needs our help. Just observe her desperation in the video taken on Friday.

    My heart aches for this poor furbaby…… she needs to be in a nice quiet home, being snuggled and reassurance that she is going to be ok and that the world is ok too.

    OMG: what a sweetheart!!! I wish I was local so I could foster her…… I hope she finds a new furever family ASAP who will treasure her and treat her as a beloved family member……..
