All dogs need and deserve to be a part of a loving family. Unfortunately, not all them get to experience it. For those without luck, each day is a fight for survival; they don’t know what it feels to have the love, care and attention of a human friend!

Benny used to be one of those dogs. As a resident of the Carson Animal Care Center, a high-kill shelter in Gardena, California, Benny had no idea what the future had in store for him. Though the future was far from bright for the poor puppy, as he ended up in the shelter, when he was just eight months old, a nice family fell in love with Benny and decided to offer him a forever home. But the moment he realizes, he’s about to leave the shelter, Benny has the most unexpected and heartwarming reaction!

“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,” the shelter wrote on Facebook. “Thanks for all you SHARING, checkout his FREEDOM WALK filled with lots of jumps and tail wagging! Happy life sweet BENNY.”
