Benny, as he was baptized, seemed to have given up on life that night. Leslie wrote in a Facebook post:

His face swollen and his skin ripped from his leg almost to the bone. [...] Tonight was supposed to be his last night. Poor guy was crying [...] and his wound was dripping pus. You could see down the skin.

It was not long before they discovered that another dog, Betty, was also stranded out in the cold next to Benny. She was healthy but freezing, and it seemed she had been keeping watch over her hurt friend.

Benny and Betty are being kept together and will be transported from Texas to the shelter clinic in New York as soon as they are ready. The two have a bond that only loyal friends can form. No-one knows for how many days or weeks the pups were left to fend for themselves in the cold.
