When Benji was given his first bowl of food in months, his deep trauma surfaced. The poor dog was in disbelief and he kept staring back at the rescuers. He thought it was all a trick and he might get kicked any moment if he touched the food.

However, hunger got the better of him and Benji devoured the food within seconds. The rescuers were heartbroken to see Benji’s soul-stirring reaction to a plain bowl of food and they resolved to give him a better life.
