This adorable puppy was left heartbroken after he got all dressed up to meet new owners who never showed up.
The pooch, named Vicente, was set to finally be taken in by a loving new family.
Volunteers had showered the cute four-legged friend and got him all scrubbed up ready for a forever home.
Staff at the shelter said he had gotten all dressed up as he was scheduled to be adopted.
But cruel owners broke the pup’s heart when they failed to walk through the door.
Snaps shared by the Rescue Me Foundation in Bogota, Colombia, reveal the tragic tale.
One picture shows the prepared puppy donning looking this best in a “suit” for the special occasion.
But the next shows him lying down and scratching his side with his hind legs.
Volunteers said: “The person supposed to adopt Vicente never came for him. When he was all showered and ready for a home, the person cancelled his adoption.
“Then they ask us why we are so strict with the process, this is why! If you want to adopt keep in consideration it is a commitment forever, animals are not things we can dispose of when we don’t feel like having a dog anymore.”
There was a happy ending for Vicente despite the original heartbreak.
After the shelter shared the adorable snaps one member of the public couldn’t help but open their home.
Fortunately, the pooch was adopted only hours later by another family.
The centre said: “Thank you, everyone, for your interest, we never thought his story would get so far. We want to tell you Vicente has already been adopted by a beautiful family.”
