Muneca was looked after by the team at the shelter who fed her and kept her warm. So, for a time, she lived a sheltered life and she had practically everything she needed to be comfortable. Then, her life changed for the worst. The shelter couldn't afford to keep elderly dogs, which meant that there was only one possible outcome for Muneca and her older friends. But then, something miraculous occurred.

When Elaine Seamans, a worker at the shelter, bent down and gave Muneca a head scratch, the pooch jumped into her arms and wouldn't let go. In fact, even as Elaine tried to put her down, Muneca cried as if begging her to stay. This broke Elaine's heart, but she knew she couldn't keep the pooch. As an employee at the shelter, she had to be tough and avoid adopting animals. This meant that Muneca's fate was practically sealed.

Muneca's days seemed to be numbered, but she enjoyed the cuddle time she received from Elaine. However, Elaina's heart broke because she knew what Muneca expected from her, but she simply couldn't adopt her no matter how much she wanted to. Then, Elaine saw a glimmer of hope that very same day when she saw John Hwang. It seemed that Muneca now had a fighting chance.

As she held Muneca in her arms, Elaine noticed John Hwang, a photographer who often visited the shelter. He took shots of the various animals who lived there. These photos would potentially give the dogs the chance to find a forever family. John accomplished this by sharing the photos on his page and hope someone would reach out to him about the animal. So, Elaine decided to ask him to photograph Muneca.

John was skeptical when Elaine approached him. He loved all kinds of pets, but he knew that elderly pooches had a tough time being adopted. But one look at Muneca clinging to Elaine was all he needed to cast all of his doubts aside. So, John snapped a few photos, and then he posted them. Now they just had to wait to see if Muneca would get adopted soon.
