Benji’s rescue followed by his incredible transformation may leave you teary-eyed. When Hope For Paws went to rescue Benji, they were not prepared for what was in store. Benji had been living on the streets all his life. When they arrived at the spot, they found a heavily matted dog covered with ticks and fleas. Apparently, the dog had not felt a human touch in his lifetime, so he did not know how to trust humans.
When the rescuers finally managed to put the leash around Benji, he struggled vigorously for a while. The rescuers tried to touch him to slowly calm him down with loving care. Finally, this worked and Benji calmed down. He somehow believed that he was now in safe hands. You can see in the video that after one point, he becomes so submissive and allows rescuers to save his life.
Once in the vet’s clinic, the years of neglect was shaved off to expose his body covered with ticks and fleas. He is given a medicated bath and put in foster care to heal his heart. Benji slowly overcomes his past and his soul is healed. He is now waiting to find a forever home.
