The fine folks over at Hope For Paws, a rescue and adoption organization based out of Los Angeles, California, are truly dedicated volunteers who love animals. A lot of their rescue stories and video are heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. This one is all about a dog named Benji who had been neglected his entire life.
Benji has never known human affection or love, hence his avoiding them at all costs. When the rescuers came to help, he bolted in the opposite direction and right into a busy intersection! It also took some incredible reflexes to close a gate and use a gentle snare to finally catch him. Thanks to the efforts of Lisa Chiarelli, Benji made an amazing turnaround and is now looking for his first ever loving family.
