Benji was living with a person, but we can’t actually call that person an owner because of what he did to poor Benji.
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 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, Benji just looked at the bowl of food they offered him. He 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.
The video, during the first part, might be difficult to watch for some viewers. Benji’s recovery is truly amazing! Wait until you see him at the 2:00 mark! You won’t believe what you’re seeing!
We really don’t understand why people would adopt pets when they can’t take care of them properly. It’s way too terrible to just “forget” about them. But we’re very glad that Benji was saved in time! Please don’t forget to share Benji’s story.
