Shelter puppy dressed in a tiny tuxedo waits for new owner who canceled adoption at the last minute

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. He’s 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 adoptions—we 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.
