Kai, the adorable Shar-pei who was found abandoned at a train station in Scotland, has been adopted. The Scottish SPCA first shared the news of Kai and how he was found abandoned at the Ayr railway station with a suitcase full of his belongings, including a pillow, bowl, dog food, and a toy. The story of Kai quickly went viral, and the Scottish SPCA was flooded with requests to adopt Kai:
Cardonald’s senior animal care assistant Alan Grant said, “We were overwhelmed by offers of new homes for Kai from places as far away as New York, Los Angeles, France, Spain and even the Philippines.
Kai’s new owner is Ian Russell, a 52-year-old engineer from Glasgow, whose own beloved Dalmatian Mica passed away before Christmas. Russell believes that Kai has been brought into his life at the perfect time for them to help each other and still can’t believe that he is taking Kai home:
“I had her for 15 years and she was the apple of my eye. We pretty much spent 24 hours a day together. When I heard about Kai I knew the little guy needed a break but I never thought in a million years I’d get him. I called the Scottish SPCA just to check he was okay and see if there was anything I could do to help. Fast forward a few weeks and here I am taking him home. I honestly think it was meant to be.”
Kai and Ian Russell were brought together by the saddest circumstances, but it’s wonderful to see that Kai and his rolling suitcase will be going to a loving home.
