Pit Bull Tormented By Kids Was Afraid Of Everyone… Until Someone Fed Him A Cheeseburger

Eldad Hagar of Hope For Paws has dedicated his life to saving animals, particularly the strays that the rest of the world has given up on. So when he heard about neighborhood kids in Los Angeles throwing rocks at a homeless Pit Bull – and injuring him – he and his rescue team made a beeline to his location.


Understandably, the Pit Bull was initially very fearful of Eldad and his crew and kept his distance. That is, until they brought out a big ol’ juicy cheeseburger, at which point he tiptoed over and ate the entire thing in one bite.

It’s basically one of the greatest rescue videos of all time, and if you haven’t watched it yet, do yourself a favor and take a gander above. The Pit Bull was soon given the name Buddha – possibly because of his serene and gentle nature, or maybe it has something to do with his rotund stomach – and eventually found a forever home.
