Obregon walked to the back with an HSNT employee and tried to keep her focus.
Then she saw Benji.
His head was down looking toward the concrete. It was minutes since he had been surrendered. He looked defeated.
"When I called his name he barely lifted his head," Obregon said. "He shook as he was so afraid."
She looked at him. "Benji, it's me," she said. "I'm here to rescue you again, and I'm taking you home."
Benji looked up at Obregon and his eyes widened. She asked the employee if she could just take Benji home right then and there.
"Yeah let's take him out, put him on a leash, take you upstairs and get you both out of here," the employee said to Obregon.
A dog originally found on the highway
When Obregon first saved Benji, a wheaten terrier mix, in 2012, he had been a stray her husband found running down a busy highway. Her husband directed Benji out of traffic and called his wife, and they were able to capture him.
