Highly emotional video – Dog who has never had an owner is finally rescued.
Recently, Hope For Paws received a call about a stray dog who has been living on the streets for a very long time. In fact, the team predicts that the dog has never had a human owner whatsoever. They believe he was born and raised entirely on the streets of Los Angeles.
When Hope For Paws arrived on the scene, the dog was hiding under a car. As they tried to approach him, he quickly started to run in the other direction. This lead to a foot chase that eventually ended in someones backyard.
Fortunately, the team was able to capture the dog with minimal problems. However, the dog, now named Benji, was in terrible shape. The man in the video described Benji as having “one of the worst mattings I have ever seen in my life”. The poor pooch also had fleas, ticks, and plenty of trust issues.
When Benji arrived at the rescue, he was given a hair cut, bath, and medical care. Benji quickly transformed into a much healthier looking dog. Sadly, he still had a strong fear of humans.
Benji spent the next 10 days in somewhat of a depression. He didn’t move or speak to anyone. That’s when the team decided to introduce him to other dogs.
This was a brilliant move because Benji’s fears slowly started to disappear. He became more receptive to human contact. By the end of the video, Benji looks like a very happy dog!
