We often hear stories about sick, neglected animals that are suffering, either at the hands of an abusive owner or suffering against the harsh elements of the world.
Unfortunately, this was no different this poor pooch was covered with long matted fur and riddled with mites when he was saved from the streets now you’ll never be able to recognise her.
Benji was fearful of human touch when Hope For Paws in Los Angeles received a call from a concerned nearby resident.
But after a brief chase, rescuers managed to corner Benji and calm him down enough to place a leash around his neck and take him back to the shelter.
“Physically, he was so badly matted, covered with ticks and fleas,” Hope For Paws founder Eldad Hagar wrote on YouTube. “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.”
