Bulldog with disabilities arrives at new forever home but is left heartbroken

An adorable Bulldog has been heartlessly let down by his new “forever family” after getting dressed up and driving 40 miles to meet them.

Jack the American Bulldog is no ordinary pup. The little guy suffers from Spina Bifida which means he can only walk a few steps at a time and will have to wear nappies forever.

The silent treatment

But despite his condition, the little pup is loving, playful, and an all-around good boy. This makes the cruel “ghosting” of him even more mean.  

Little Jack had a bath, got spruced up and even donned an adorable frog outfit to meet his new family, but following a 40-minute drive, there was a rude awakening as he arrived at the designated meeting point.

Lights are on, but nobody's home

When Jack arrived (along with workers from the Peaches Bully Rescue), no one was there to meet him. Shelter workers repeatedly called and messaged the new owners but were ignored every time. It’s unsure whether they got cold feet or never intended to adopt the pup in the first place.

On the way back to the shelter, the rescuers and little Jack were all in a very sad mood.

A social effort

BUT, the beauty of social media is alive and kicking and as shelter workers shared the sad story on their Facebook page, the post went viral.

Since posting, 200 people have already offered to provide Jack with the loving forever home he deserves. Will there possibly be a happy ending after all? We’re keeping our fingers crossed!

Good luck, little guy!
