This Puppy Got All Dressed Up For His New Owners Just To Be Stood Up At The Last Moment

This Puppy Got All Dressed Up For His New Owners Just To Be Stood Up At The Last Moment

bored panda - 3 days ago

Sometimes life doesn’t go the way you want it to. That’s how it went for this adorable 3-month-old pupper named Vicente. This pup got all dressed up because his new owners were supposed to pick him up for adoption. He wore an adorable little tuxedo and was full of excitement to meet his new family.

Sadly, his new owners never showed up. The dressed-up pup was left devastated. “We rescued Vicente, his siblings, and his mom in Zipaquirá, a town near Bogotá. Hes 3 months old. We have an adoption process with a form and the guy who wanted to adopt him applied and passed all of our requirements. He even went to our shelter and picked Vicente out of his brothers and sisters. He supposedly would pick up Vicente for adoption on the 9th to take him home. So we did what we usually do for adoptionswe gave him a bath and prepared him for his adoption day (with the tiny smoking jacket as they need to be perfect for their special day), but the guy never arrived. He stood him up and then called to cancel the adoption, said Diana, a volunteer at Rescátame to Bored Panda.

The shelter that Vicente lives in is called Rescátame Foundation, which is dedicated to finding abandoned animals and getting them a home. The shelter shared Vicente’s story on their social media and it went viral. People sent love and care for the pup and many of them wanted to adopt him.

Sadly, his new owners never showed up and the pup was heartbroken

However, the shelter wanted to be sure that the pup would actually be adopted this time: “Vicentes alleged adopter never came for him. When he was ready for a home, bañadito, he canceled his adoption. Then we are asked why we are so rigid with the process, for that reason! Because we dont want to have the slightest doubt that our furry ones will be in excellent hands for the rest of their lives. If you want to adopt, remember that it is a commitment foreveranimals are not things you can have when you feel like having a dog.”

After the shelter shared his story on Facebook many people reacted and the post went viral

Because of all the attention the pup got, Vincente soon found a new loving home

After a lot of searching, Vicente finally found a home and a new loving family that actually wanted him. The shelter released an official statement saying that the pup is now adopted: “Thanks to all interested peoplewe never thought that your story would get that far. We want to tell you that Vicente has already been adopted by a beautiful family. We still have over 40 furry friends at the foundation waiting for a home. You can write to us via our intern, who will share their adoption forms with requirements.”
