They say that the eyes are windows to the soul, but the body has a language of its own as well.
One dog, named "Chelsea," perfectly expresses her utter dejection through her body language.
The young dog, estimated to be one year of age, is currently housed at the San Bernardino City Animal Control in California, and it is clearly evident that she is scared and confused.
Chelsea is trying to disappear in her kennel run - she is trying to escape the fear that has consumed her body.
Chelsea arrived to this facility on February 6 and she will become available for adoption on February 13.
Please take a moment to network on this frightened girl's behalf. Her photo may reach an owner who is searching, or, if there is no one looking for her, perhaps she will touch the heart of a prospective adopter.
