Dog on Death Row Overwhelmed with Joy as He Finds a New Loving Family for Adoption

 

The days spent in a shelter are often overlooked, with the long and sorrowful ones of a pup in mind. These responsibilities are basic, and they can’t compare to love or care. Not to mention the terrible fate that may befall them if they aren’t adopted into a household. This is an issue that occurs far too often at high-kill facilities. So, what happens when an unwanted shelter dog is adopted into a family and learns that its existence will soon take a turn for the worse?

Much has been discussed on the impact of adoption, but seeing it for yourself goes beyond explanation. Such is the case with Benny, a sweet and shy shelter dog who was adopted from the high-kill Carson Animal Care Center in Gardena, California. Basically, Benny was on death row when he was finally adopted. So how did he react?

At first, you can see Benny busting at the seams with anticipation. He’s trying to keep it together as he looks around, sitting as still as he possibly can, while he waits to see if this will be his family. But you can totally tell he’s freaking out on the inside. I could imagine a dialogue like, “Are they mine, am I theirs, is this it?”
