A house dog

The expression of the dog is complex. Based on her whole life, she knows that this visitor is not going to free her in any way. She was supposed to be a house dog but was not loved. They weren't physically violent on her, however, ignoring her, locking her in a cage is still a violence. The owner only gives her food and clean the cage so she has no one petting her, playing with her. She is tired and hopeless but still affectionate just to see this visitor who comes close enough to make eye contact.
