Up until recently, a sweet but shy dog named Benny had no idea what the future had in store for him, or how close he came to seeing his cut short. As a resident of the Carson Animal Care Center, a high-kill shelter in Gardena, California, all he could do was sit and wait for someone to come along and save him, which he did week after week with no success. But then that all changed.

That trepidation on pooches part when he realized they were 'coming for him', that at once hopeful and fearful dilemma, too precious. They know where they are is a house of death. They have finely tuned senses, they can hear, smell and sense this is the end for them.
That dogs guardedly hopeful and then exuberant response to being led away instead of to the death chamber was life affirming.
I get to go, I'm out, I'm surviving, I'm out, I'm out, I'm saved!
Thanks for sharing that.
Makes me want to go out and save a couple more.
