Benny was a death row dog – a dog at a shelter that was about to be euthanized due to overcrowding problems. However, his holiday wish came true and he was adopted at the last minute, and his reaction to “being sprung” is absolutely adorable.
He had been staying at the Carson Animal Care Center in Gardena, California since November. At only eight months old, he wound up at the shelter, and like many other dogs, was waiting for a forever family to come in and adopt him.
Before he was going to become another victim of the overcrowding that plagues most shelters, a family came in and did just that! Benny was saved, and his Christmas wish came true!
