Every dog’s dream is to one day be adopted into a loving family. So when that day finally came for 3-month old abandoned pup Vincente, it was only right that he was dressed for the occasion.Suited and booted, in the perfect pup-sized tuxedo, the little puppy waited patiently for his family to be. He and the Rescátame Foundation were full of excitement and justifiably so — but things quickly went downhill.
This is Vicente. He got all dressed up in his tuxedo for his new family to pick him up from the shelterSadly, the family never arrived. After signing all of the documentation the family changed their mind at the last minute, leaving poor Vincente devastated.Yet, refusing to let a good outfit go to waste, the shelter staff took a few snaps of the dapper looking pupper and shared it on their social media platforms, with the story of the failed adoption.
The response was overwhelming and the post quickly went viral. Many were sympathizing with Vincente, sending their well wishes, and some even offering to adopt him themselves!
However, like most shelters, Rescátame Foundation is strict and cautious with their potential adopters, admitting to being rigid with there process to avoid disappointment for their pups.
“We don’t want to have the slightest doubt that our furry ones will be in excellent hands for the rest of their lives.” Said the shelter.
They also urge people to remember that adopting a dog is a life-long commitment rather than a decision one makes flippantly.
Nevertheless, 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 people—we never thought that your story would get that far. We want to tell you that Vicente has already been adopted by a beautiful family.”
The announcement of Vincente’s adoption broke more than a few hearts. But, with over 40 more residences at the shelter there plenty more puppers to go around.
With any luck, all of Vicente’s sweet pals can get the same happy ending they all deserve!
Vicent now enjoys his days being cuddled up in his new home!
This chubby baby is very happy now
