This male shar-pei crossbreed was found in Ayr railway station in Scotland where he was leashed to a banister. There was also a suitcase that was placed next to the dog which contained his pillow, toy, food bowl and food.
According to the Scottish SPCA, the dog was micro-chipped and they found out that its name is Kai. Via the dog’s microchip, authorities were able to locate Kai’s first owner, who reported that he had sold the dog in 2013 but did not possess any information on the new owner.
Inspector Stewart Taylor of the Scottish SPCA said, “Regardless of the fact Kai was left with his belongings, this was still a cruel incident and we are keen to identify the person responsible.”
“If anyone can help we would ask them to get in touch as soon as possible… Kai is around two to three years old and is a lovely dog with a nice nature. We will look after him until we can find him a permanent and loving home.”
While officials look for the owner of the dog who abandoned it, the charity will care for Kai until they find him a permanent home.
In Scotland, abandoning an animal is an offence under the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006.
