Sad Fig tree

My fig is not loving this Texas Summer heat...
She is suffering and I can't stand it.
I've harvested zero figs. The ones that actually form are sad and small and squirrels end up getting them.
I see fig trees in other neighbor's yards, so I know it's possible for them to thrive here...
Just a week and a half ago, my mother and I were admiring how healthy she appeared, even tho figs were no where to be seen....and now this is how she looks. Forlorn and thirsty.  I watered her.  Hubby watered her.  There is even a sprinkler head in the corner of the fence that waters her briefly a couple times a week.
Anyone got suggestions?

I have no idea, unless it needs some kind of fertilizer or it has some kind of pest. Sorry about your tree :o(
