Blind, Abandoned Dog Refuses To Let Go Of The First Person She Meets At The Shelter.

When a dog is surrendered at an animal shelter, there’s always a deep sense of disconnection.

No longer someone’s pet. Unplugged from everything she thought she knew in life.

Maybe that’s why Muneca was so eager to make a connection when she arrived at the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center in Los Angeles. Especially since the 18-year-old dachshund had already lost more than most – not just a home and an owner, but also her vision.

When longtime volunteer Elaine Seamans paid Muneca a visit on Tuesday, the blind, flea-infested dog leapt into her arms – and never wanted to let go.

“Ultimately, the person who sees the photo – I want them to feel something. I want them to feel a connection,” Hwang says. “If I can capture the right sort of connect, then the person who sees the image will feel it too.”

It turns out Hwang’s pictures helped Muneca make an even greater connection. Shared on Facebook, they caught the eye of a rescue group called the Frosted Faces Foundation. After spending just two days at the shelter, Muneca was on her way to see a veterinarian in San Diego on Wednesday.
