The rescuers went back and got the Labrador, now known as Betty. Ysuhuaylas then called Rescue Dogs Rock NYC for help. They agreed to take both Benny and Betty in.
“Our hearts break in [two] thinking about Benny, day after day, night after night in the freezing cold, in pain, living in this box,” wrote the group on its Facebook page. “Benny needs all our prayers and positive thoughts.”
Benny was in critical condition but is now staying with a foster until his leg heals. Despite what he’s been through, he is still a very friendly and loving dog who loves to play with toys.
Benny is doing extremely well considering he spent weeks, if not months, freezing in a box in an abandoned wooded area. He’s spending the next ten days at RDRNYC’s Texas Vet partner before he’s transported to New York with his doggy friend, Betty, where they will be available for adoption.
