A senior dog found herself locked up in a frightening kennel run at a Houston, Texas, animal shelter after her owner lost his job and decided that she had to be surrendered. The 13-year-old dog, named Adrienne, is so scared that she refuses to get up for walks.

On Thursday, Houston Underdogs writes:

RESCUE ONLY! 🎀Adrienne came into BARC as an owner surrender on 11/10. Her owner lost his job and can no longer care for her anymore. She’s not adjusting well to shelter life and doesn’t want to get up for walks.😢 Poor Adrienne isn’t showing any signs of aggression, but must feel so confused and alone.💔No senior dog should spend their final days feeling abandoned in a scary shelter.

Notes from temperament test

A volunteer writes:

Temp Test: Attempted to do a dog to dog intro. I walk up to the kennel and Adrienne was sitting against the wall. I leashed her and she wouldn’t get up or walk. She maintained a tight body posture while laying on the ground with her tail curled around her.

Saving Adrienne

You can lend this frightened senior dog a hand by taking a moment to network her adoption information. Please note, she is listed as Rescue Only.
