Photographer captures moment dog begs for freedom

Photographer captures moment dog begs for freedom

These powerful emotive photographs capture a shelter Chihuahua in California beginning for an escape and more crucially a new home to belong to.

Photographer, John Hwang, has spent one on one time with the pooch, who he described as restless from being in the kennel, looking to find a way out. It wasn’t until he started snapping some shots of the furball when something surprisingly touching suddenly happened.

“He got up on his hind legs, put his front paws together and shook them up and down, as if begging me to help him,” Hwang said.

Initially it was too real to be true and Hwang thought this action of beginning was unintentional, but the dog continued to do it and it was seen as a sign of beginning for freedom.
