With all his worldly possessions in just a suitcase – Kai the Shar Pei crossbreed’s story is very reminiscent of one Paddington Bear.
Discovered on January 2 – Kai had been tied to a railing outside Ayr Station in Scotland with a suitcase containing a toy, pillow, bowl and food.
Taken in by The Scottish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), the animal welfare charity is currently trying to track down the Shar Pei cross’ owner.
Kai had been microchipped so the RSPCA were able to find out his name and track down his previous owners who reportedly sold the canine on Gumtree in 2013. They were unfortunately unable to tell the charity the address of the person who bought him so the investigation continues.
However due to his unusual story, Kai will not be short of new homes to go to. The SPCA has received hundreds of phone calls and emails from dog lovers in the UK, USA, Canada, Spain and even the Philippines – offering to rehome the adorable pup.
Spokesman for the charity Ben Supple said, “We haven’t as yet found a home for Kai though we’ve been inundated with offers and will ensure we find him the right owner.”
