On December 10th 2015, something magical happened for one dog at the Carson Animal Shelter in California. The shelter does its best to rehome the multitude of dogs that come into their care each day, but sometimes they need to euthanise dogs that aren’t likely to find new homes to make space for new pups. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are one of the breeds that often don’t find new homes, due to the prevalent thinking that the breed is an aggressive one.
Young Benny the Pit Bull, however, had a happy ending. Instead of ending his days on doggy death row, he was adopted by a rescuer. Benny was described as timid and shy and had previously received no interest from prospective adopters. That is until one kind soul could see past the tabloid headlines and realise that Benny was a dog with a lot of love to give.
Watch the video below and see Benny tap dance, wag his tail, jump and generally look pleased as punch as he says hi to his new family for the first time. It will have you welling up, we promise!
Please SHARE this video to help end the stigma against this wonderful breed!
This special little guy captured the hearts of everyone who stopped by his kennel. He hit the jackpot when this beautiful family chose to take him home. Thanks for all you SHARING, checkout his FREEDOM WALK filled with lots of jumps and tail wagging! Happy life sweet BENNY <3PHOTO THREAD: https://www.facebook.com/savingcarsonshelterdogs/photos/a.172032662969376.1073741830.171850219654287/511316932374279/?type=3&theaterJukin Media Verified (Original)* For licensing / permission to use: Contact – licensing(at)jukinmediadotcom
