Jack is a nine-month-old rescue dog who is so optimistic when it comes to finding a new, loving home. Sadly, though, just when it seemed like he had one, his hopes were crushed.
The Peaches Bully Rescue in Ohio took Jack in as a special needs foster dog. The American bulldog suffers from spina bifida and that affects his motor skills. He also has to wear a diaper all the time to prevent accidents. Otherwise, Jack is a healthy and happy pup.
There is one thing that Jack misses the most – having a family of his own. Recently, Jack thought that he finally found one after a potential adopter contacted the shelter. They said that they wanted to get to know the pup and meet him in person. So, the staff arranged the meeting and helped Jack put his best face forward.
The shelter assigned Jack a team that drove 40 minutes to help him out. They bathed him, put on a fancy harness, and made him wear fresh diapers. However, on the big day, the unthinkable happened. The potential adopter ghosted the pup, leaving everyone disappointed.
After getting rejected, Jack needed some cheering up. Luckily, someone heard about what happened that day and decided to gift him with a new toy. Jack appreciated it, but unknown to him, that would only be the first of many.
The story about Jack getting stood up started to spread online and people from around the world began sending him gifts and treats. Along with their tokens of love was a surge of potential adopters who hope to make good on that failed promise.
The people’s outpouring support deeply touched Jack and the shelter staff’s hearts. They had over 600 inquiries and were already processing 200 adoption applications. Since Jack’s failed date, things have already started to look up. He now really has a much higher chance of finding his perfect match.
The shelter could not believe how widely Jack would be loved, and they could not feel more blessed. They plan to set up a meet and greet with the potential families and will keep everyone posted. They also thanked everyone and asked for their continued support.
