A disabled bulldog puppy who lives in a shelter got all dressed-up to meet his new owners…only for them to ghost him. The nine month-old pup, called Jack, was spruced-up and excited to meet his potential new owners in Westchester, Ohio, last Thursday, and even went on a 40 minute drive to meet them.
But they never showed-up, with the puppy – who has spina bifida and must wear a diaper – forced to head back to Peaches Bully Rescue again afterwards. A shelter worker detailed the sad saga on Facebook, writing: ‘Jack was very sad when his meet and greet person was a no show, no call.
‘He had a bath, got his fancy harness on, had a fresh diaper, and a dedicated foster team that drove 40 mins each way just to end in huge disappointment.
‘Obviously, that wasn’t his family. Morgan, the nice lady from Cabela’s, bought him a new toy to help him forget this experience. Thank you!! Your family will come sweet boy and when they do, they will be perfect.

‘Respect that we are all volunteers and just trying to give this guy his best chance. Not showing up or calling is bad form.’
Jack’s sat story was widely shared by animal lovers and triggered best wishes as well as donations from across the globe. Around 200 other people have since applied to care for Jack.
Shelter bosses say the pup cannot walk far because of his clubbed feet, but add that Jack’s permanent diaper is relatively straightforward to manage.
They added that the pup is extremely affectionate, and that he gets on well with both cats and dogs.
