The Robinson family started preparing the baby’s room as soon as they settled into their new house so that it would be ready when the new member of the family was born.
In just four months, Mrs. Robinson had to give birth to a boy, her second child, in 4 months.
The Robinsons were animal lovers, but since their landlord banned them from owning a dog because they lived in an apartment, they no longer want a dog but at least one puppy.
The two wives took their 6-year-old son Matias to an animal shelter to choose a dog. They wanted a non-aggressive puppy who could grow up on the farm with the kids.
After touring the paddocks and hearing about some of the dogs’ tragic stories, they were hesitant of which puppy to choose.
As they were leaving, they came across Benson, a 4-year-old pit bull. He walked back, his tail tucked between his knees, as if he had lost all faith in people.
The Robinson family inquired about Benson, and the staff at the animal shelter told them that he had a truly awful life.
After being used in dog fights, he was dumped on the streets, where volunteers found him.
Before being adopted by a couple, Benson spent some time in the dog shelter. However, after just two weeks, they took Benson back to the shelter on the grounds that he has behavioral problems and is violent toward his owners.
Despite the volunteers’ advice that Benson not live with children, he was adopted.
Mr. Robinson asked for a chance for Benson. They ultimately made it home, despite the fact that Benson didn’t like being on a leash, and even getting to the car was difficult.
At first, Benson was very apprehensive, quiet, and secluded. But over time, Benson was able to adapt and build bonds with each family member, especially Matias.
After Mrs. Robinson gave birth, they brought the new baby home and introduced Benson to him.
He gently licked the baby’s face after giving him a sniff. The owners understood right away that Benson was a lovely dog and that they would get along well.
The baby was only two months old when the Robinsons were awakened one night by the a loud barking.
He continued to bark and tried to enter the crib, but the safety bars prevented him from doing so. In an effort to reach the baby, he started chewing the cot.
When the Robinsons took the child into their arms, they realized the infant had stopped breathing, which was what initially alarmed them because they thought Benson was trying to harm the child.
He was taken to a nearby hospital, where doctors were able to revive him. The doctor told the parents that if the baby had remained in cardiorespiratory arrest for more than 30 minutes, he would have died.
Benson achieved renown and proved that nothing occurs by accident. The Robinson family was the first to give Benson a chance, and Benson ultimately saved their baby’s life.
