There is a video of a rescue dog from the Carson Shelter in Gardena, California, that will undoubtedly have you crying if you have a soft spot for animals in need.
Staff at the Carson Shelter videotaped the moment that a pitbull “realized” he was getting adopted – and the precious reaction definitely pulls at your heartstrings.
Pitbull, named Benny, first came to the Carson Animal Care Center when he was just eight months old. However, Benny’s happiness was reversed when the family came and decided to adopt him. An anonymous family provided him with an eternal home, and the moment Benny came out of his kennel to freedom was a sweet one filmed by cameras.
The Saving Carson Shelter Dogs accompanied the heartwarming video with the caption:
“This special little guy captured the hearts of everyone who stopped by his kennel. He hit the jackpot when this beautiful family chose to take him home. Checkout his FREEDOM WALK filled with lots of jumps and tail wagging! Happy life sweet BENNY.”
At first, Benny seems a little wary. However, the moment he realized he was adopted, his tail began to wave incessantly. And Benny then started jumping from joy several times.
The tear-jerking video has since been viewed more than 6.3 million times on Facebook. He also received more than 4.4 comments – many of which are people who wish Benny all the best in his new home or thank his new family for receiving him.
