Shy Shelter Dog Can’t Hold Back Emotions When He Realizes He’s Been Adopted From A High-Kill Shelter

ADVERTISEMENT

Since November, Benny, an 8-month-old pit bull, has been on death-row like all other unfortunate abandoned dogs at Carson Animal Care Center, a high-kill shelter in Gardena, California. For weeks nobody wanted to take this shy but sweet doggie home, until a miracle happened.

On December 10th, Benny’s life was spared. He was noticed by a sweet family who decided to adopt him. When the pooch was about to be taken out of the cage, he was so confused and happy, he could barely stay still.

Sadly, way too many kind-hearted dogs spend their last days behind bars and end up being euthanised instead of finding a loving home. Visit this site to know more about how you can help them.

Watch the video below for Benny’s heart-melting reaction.

It's refreshing to see the article didn't try and shame the shelter for euthanizing animals like so many do online. A heart warming and breaking story... we should be shaming the people who let their dogs loose or abandon them instead of the shelters who break their backs trying to provide for them.

Blame the owners that breed their dogs and take no responsibility for the pups that are brought into this cruel world Only 10 dogs out of hundred dogs will get a forever home, the rest will end up in shelters or dumped on thje streets. To breed your dog rates up with rapist and murderers in my book. Disgusting to allow puppies to come into this world when Millions of dogs are put down in shelters every year. . Spay and Neuter your pets people this is the only thing that will stop the killing at shelters.. The public is to blame . Enforce spay and neuter laws its so simple .

What a sweet dog. He keeps sitting and wanting to please. I only wish they'd gone to Benny earlier instead of hanging back and filming, but thank goodness they adopted him. Since we moved to the country, we've had three dogs, all through the SPCA. One of them was one of my best friends in my life, and I still miss him.
