A family offering to adopt a disabled bulldog never turned up when a rescue centre arranged to hand the pooch over to his potential new owners.

Nine-month-old Jack has spina bifida – yes, dogs can have that condition too! – he was taken on a 40 minute drive from Peaches Bully Rescue shelter to Westchester, Ohio but unfortunately didn’t go according to plan.

A reprehensive from the animal centre explained what happened on a gut-wrenching message on Facebook.

The post read: 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 has clubbed feet and needs to wear a nappy at all times, but the shelter say he’s extremely affectionate.

Since the message was posted around 200 people have offered to adopt Jack.
