Abandoning dogs on the street is not a new phenomenon and surely not a surprising one. Sometimes people get bored with their dog or they can’t support their needs anymore. So, instead of driving at a shelter, they either throw them out in the street or leave them alone at a public place. In this case, Kai, who is a Shar-Pei crossbreed, was lied at a rail station in Scotland next to a suitcase with some of his belongings. The SPCA of the station spotted Kai and an effort to find him a new home began.
Kai, a Shar-Pei crossbreed was abandoned at a rail station in Scotland
The people who left him there had also left a small suitcase that included some of his favorite things.
The suitcase included a pillow, a toy, some food and a food bowl
Kai was microchipped, so the Scottish SPCA found the dog’s previous owners.
His previous owners said that they had sold Kai online in 2013
Unfortunately, they couldn’t remember the new owner’s name and address and the monsters haven’t been found yet.
Fortunately, Kai was put up for adoption and many people wanted to take him home
Dozens of people from around the world offered to take Kai back home, but Ian Russel was the lucky guy who was chosen by the Scottish SPCA to be the new friend of Kai’s.
At the time of his abandonment, Kai must have been 2-3 years old
Under the Scottish Animal Health and Welfare Act 2006, abandoning an animal is an offense and those who are caught abandoning animals might be banned from keeping a pet for the rest of their lives.
Ian Russel contacted the SPCA to see if the dog was okay and two weeks later he welcomed him to his new home
His previous dog had just died three months before Kai got into his home, so he saw him as a blessing in disguise.
Ian often takes Kai to work with him
He is a hydraulic engineer, which means that he mostly works outdoors and he can take Kai with him and sometimes let him run around.
The reason Ian was chosen is because he showed interest in the dog’s needs and not his own
Abandoning an animal should be treated as an offense in every country in the world and those who break the law should be banned from getting an animal for the rest of their lives.
