Jared and his partner, Jessica Williams, had recently relocated to their new apartment where pets were allowed. Jessica had been wanting to adopt a dog for a while, and when she saw this particular dog’s picture, it made her decision a lot easier.
The homeless dog known as Benji was brought to a large shelter in Los Angeles. Regrettably, due to a flea allergy, he had lost most of his fur, and he was apprehensive and frightened of everything.
So, Jessica and her boyfriend felt that they could provide a loving home for Benji, so they drove for more than 6 hours from Sacramento to L.A. to meet him.
When the shelter staff learned that the couple wanted to adopt Benji despite his need for extensive training and care, they were surprised. However, the couple was determined and did not want to be discouraged.
They proceeded to sign the adoption papers and take Benji home, and the dog soon realized that he was in good hands. Benji started to play and enjoy life as a real member of the couple’s family.
