This Puppy Got All Dressed Up For His New Owners Just To Be Stood Up At The Last Moment

Published

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.

The shelter that Vicente lived in is called Rescátame Foundation, which is dedicated to finding abandoned animals and getting them a home. The shelter shared Vicente’s story on their social media and it went viral. People sent love and care for the pup and many of them wanted to adopt him.

However, the shelter wanted to be sure that the pup would actually be adopted this time: “Vicente’s alleged adopter never came for him. When he was ready for a home, bañadito, he canceled his adoption. Then we are asked why we are so rigid with the process, for that reason! Because we don’t want to have the slightest doubt that our furry ones will be in excellent hands for the rest of their lives. If you want to adopt, remember that it is a commitment forever—animals are not things you can have when you feel like having a dog.”

After the shelter shared his story on Facebook, many people reacted and the post went viral

Because of all the attention the pup got, Vicente soon found a new, loving home

After a lot of searching, Vicente finally found a home and a new, loving family that actually wanted him. The shelter released an official statement saying that the pup is now adopted: “Thanks to all interested people—we never thought that your story would get that far. We want to tell you that Vicente has already been adopted by a beautiful family. We still have over 40 furry friends at the foundation waiting for a home. You can write to us via our intern, who will share their adoption forms with requirements.”

25 Times The BBC Show ‘Changing Rooms’ Thought They Nailed Their Room Makeovers, But Now The Designs Look Dreadful

Published

There are many ways to renew your room. A trip to Ikea or a call to your mom are the most popular options. Other times, a new furry carpet will do the job. Rarely will you need some assistance from the outside world, and in that case, dad and Home Depot may be the only option.

But you never, ever entrust your room’s makeover to your neighbor. Below, we’ve got a fair amount of evidence to back up this claim. If you’ve ever heard of the BBC show Changing Rooms from the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, and its American variation Trading Spaces, you’d know what it’s all about.

‘Cause swapping houses to redesign the room of the person next-door sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. From covering the floor in strips of silver tape to casually hanging birch trees from the ceiling, these are just a few examples of letting your neighbor think outside the box. And your room is the one getting the hit.

Spy drama ‘Tehran’ a nail-biting thriller

Published

By

Fans of the cloak-and-dagger genre will be intrigued by “Tehran,” an eight-episode Israeli spy drama from “Fauda” writer Moshe Zonder.

The series, which premiered on Israel’s Kan 11 network in June, is now available on Apple TV+ (with English subtitles) — and, like “Fauda,” it’s a doozy — from its topical plot line, to its frenetic pace to its three-dimensional portrayal of people on both sides of a long-simmering historical conflict warring with each other, and with their own personal demons.

Here, that conflict is between Israel and Iran. In the series premiere, Mossad agent Tamar Rabinyan (Niv Sultan) is sent undercover into Tehran in order to hack into an electrical plant’s computer system and cut the power to a radar station, enabling Israeli jets to fly in undetected and bomb an Iranian nuclear power plant. The mission starts smoothly enough, but soon goes awry when, through an elaborate chain of events, Tamar blows her cover, breaks contact with her handler, Masoud Tabrizi (Navid Negahban) — who she comes to mistrust — and endeavors to find a safe place in which to hide while being chased by relentless Home Guard security chief Faraz Kamali (Shaun Toub). Eventually, it’s learned that Tamar was born in Iran and moved to Israel when she was 6; as the series progresses, she rediscovers her roots, gets enmeshed in the country’s political scene and continues plotting her escape across the border.

“Tehran” was filmed entirely in Greece, but you’d never know it. It’s easy to believe that it was shot in Tehran, with its atmosphere of menace permeating every nook and cranny of this nonstop game of cat-and-mouse, where a single misstep, however small, can mean the difference between life and death. Tamar is a tough cookie, but she’s human; her near-tears reaction to witnessing the aftermath of a public hanging — a bank manager who was said to have embezzled funds from his employer — speaks volumes about the dangerous situation into which she lands.

Zonder also endeavors to delve into the characters’ back stories; not just the stories of Tamar and her Israeli cohorts, but also Kamali, whose devotion to his job puts a strain on his marriage. It’s clear that he loves his wife, but choosing country over family forces him to miss a trip to France with his ill wife. She travels alone to Paris to undergo a serious operation, a cloud of guilt hovering over Kamali as a none-too-subtle reminder.

“Tehran” is, admittedly, a little difficult to follow at first, and really hits its relentless stride midway through the opener once the plot points are clarified. From there, it’s a pulse-pounding journey, but be forewarned: There’s no bingeing allowed, since a new episode premieres each Friday (the series premiered Sept. 25). That programming strategy has paid huge dividends for “The Boys” on Amazon Prime — keep ’em wanting more — and should work for this exciting series.
