He'd Never Had Human Contact, But Just Watch What Happens When They Start Shaving Him

When Hope For Paws got a call about a homeless dog who'd never had human contact, they knew this rescue wasn't going to be simple. Still, they were willing to do whatever it took to ensure his survival. Just wait until you see what was underneath all that fur! Here's Benji's incredible rescue, as told by the rescuer:

BENJI was a homeless dog his whole life. When Hope For Paws received the call about him, I asked Lisa Chiarelli to join me. Benji was very nervous, and when he realized that we were looking at him, he started running, and we started running after him! It was a little tricky because I had to keep an eye on him while running, and at the same time I had to set up my gentle snare AND keep my hand held camera straight – you’ll just have to see how I managed all that ;-)

After Lisa and I secured Benji, we got to take a close look him. Physically: he was so badly matted, covered with ticks and fleas, he bit his tongue as he was struggling to escape from us, so you’ll see a little bleeding – nothing serious. Mentally: Benji was living on the streets all his life, so human contact was so hard for him to get used to. After a 2 or 3 hours of grooming and medical care, he continued to Lisa Chiarelli’s house where for 10 days he almost didn’t move… frozen, always looking for a place to hide, and not wanting anyone to touch him. As usual, Lisa’s Pit Bull mixes – Lola and Frankie, decided to help Benji overcome his fears, and the result will make you so happy!!!
