Being a volunteer at a no-kill dog shelter for over five years, it always broke my heart to see so many of these loyal companions lost, depressed, and scared. As you've heard many times before, "The eyes are the window to the soul" and this is certainly true for our furry friends. Some of these precious pets would flash those sad or confused puppy-dog eyes to let us know they were struggling in life and truly wanted to find their family or someone who would love them forever. The miraculous thing about it all is nobody could predict what destiny had in store or what was waiting just around the corner for some of these pups.
Benny is one such dog who is lost and in search of his family. Having been spotted on the street by rescuers, they decide to pick him up and relocate him to the local dog shelter. As time passes, Benny begins to withdraw from everyone; he seems to have lost hope that he will ever be reunited with his family. One day rescuers open Benny’s kennel door to find him sitting there, forlorn, and not wanting to move. He's completely unaware that his fondest wish is about to come true.
As they gently pull him through the kennel door, Benny looks up to see his dream-come-true! His family is there, at the shelter, waiting for him. In the blink of an eye, the timid, lethargic, and hopeless dog completely changes; his body explodes with absolute joy. Jumping, running, and smiling, Benny has become the happiest dog on the planet. United with his family again, life is wonderful, exactly as it should be for this loyal companion. It's a story with a happy ending and one you will not want to miss!
