After a day of back-to-school shopping, Evie and Leslie Benson were on their way home when they spotted traffic swerving around a little, brown object in the distance. They soon came across him: a dog petrified with terror in the path of an approaching 18-wheeler truck.

Evie Benson told The Dodo, “We closed our eyes, frightened that we were going to watch this puppy get hit by a car.” “Luckily, the dog moved out of the way just in time.”

Because she had seen such a near call, Benson was aware of what she needed to accomplish.

He was dirty and very skinny, but despite his condition, the pup’s tail never stopped wagging.

“I was heartbroken just thinking about what this dog has been through and how scared and alone he felt,” Benson said. “The car ride was a breeze. Eventually, he fell asleep in my hands and that’s when I started crying. I wanted him to know he was finally safe.”

They brought the dog to the Goochland County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center, where he was quickly admitted.

The next day, Benson returned to check on him. She wasn’t sure if the pup would remember her, but as soon as she arrived, he jumped into her arms.

Benson stated, “We sat with him in the room and that’s when the emotions struck.” “My mother and I both began to cry… He curled up on my lap when I joined him on the floor, and he seemed happy to do so. He even laid on top of me and hugged me.

The dog was soon given the ideal name by Benson, who began calling him Wags since he was never without a tail wag.

Benson still can’t believe that so many drivers saw Wags and didn’t stop to help, but she’s so happy he’s finally getting the care he needs. Though she’s off to college in the fall and can’t adopt him, she knows that Wags will find his family in no time.

Benson remarked, “It kills my heart because I can’t adopt him. The SPCA has received several calls and letters asking how Wags is doing. He will have no problem finding a home, I’m sure of it.

Wags will undoubtedly always remember her, and Benson is confident that she will never forget the small dog on the road.

We developed a lifetime bond, and Benson declared, “I love him so much.” I’m happy I could help him and get in touch with him.
