Two-year-old Benson was found abandoned on the side of Route 10 in New Jersey. When authorities came to investigate, they found this Labrador and greyhound mix passive and “scared to death” with more than 50 bite marks all over his body. There were old scars and fresh wounds up and down his legs and on his face and head area.
Animal welfare experts suspect that Benson was used as “bait” to train fight dogs which would also explain Benson’s submissive and passive demeanor.
The Humane Society is offering a $2,500 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the abusers.
Benson was treated at a local animal clinic and after a few days of TLC, his affectionate and gentle personality is showing. He will soon be available for adoption.
