Pit Bulls Help Rescue Dog Overcome His Fears, Then A Total Transformation Takes Place

When animal rescue team Hope for Paws were called about a little dog living on the streets, they did what they do best.

The pup, Benji, had been homeless all of his life. He was terrified of human contact and covered in fleas and ticks. According to the Hope for Paws team leader, Benji’s was “the worst case of matting and neglect I’ve seen in my life.”

The pup was anxious, avoided physical contact and looked for every opportunity to hide, but Hope for Paws never gave up on him.

5 long months later, Benji is doing great thanks to the most wonderful foster family and Pit Bull buddies a dog could ask for. Check out his transformation below!
