A heartbreaking video (below) has emerged of a rescue dog so traumatized by its past that it can do nothing but stare at a wall in the corner of the room.

PAWS Animal Rescue, an Irish charity, shared video of rescue dog Cara sitting in the corner of a room, silently staring at the wall and refusing to turn around. The charity captioned the video, uploaded in July 2015, “What made her like this?”

Cara’s rescuers believe the dog has suffered years of abuse, leaving her completely traumatized, reports Daily Mail. Her behavior became even more shocking after it was pointed out that she is a sighthound, which is a whippet or greyhound that hunts by sight.

Since the video was shared, Cara was adopted my Michael and Theresa McGrath. A follow up video was filmed, showing Cara howling with another dog. A photo was also taken of Cara sitting on a comforter in the middle of a room, looking at the camera.
