Benji was rescued from his owner, but we can’t actually call that person an owner because of what he did to the poor dog.
He was deprived of food, almost dying and spent his whole life tied up. Benji’s only bedding was the concrete floor. Benji was also covered with injuries he had suffered when other people threw rocks at him.
Sidewalk Specials, based in Cape Town, South Africa, had taken Benji from that horrible place and provided him with the love and care he well deserved.
At first, he just looked at the food they offered him. Benji was certain it was some kind of trick, and he’d get beaten once he ate it.
However, he was so hungry, he couldn’t stop himself. Benji was saved just in the nick of time, as vets mentioned that he was almost dying.
Why people would adopt pets when they can’t take care of them properly. It’s way too terrible to just “forget” about them.
