At A Scotland Train Station, An Adorable Dog Is Abandoned With His Own Suitcase
Bringing any animal into your home is an important decision. Pets are a lot of responsibility; after all, you have just assumed the responsibility for their welfare. The love and joy that they bring into our lives is more than worth the effort that is put into taking care of them.
Unfortunately, the sad reality is that many people don’t seem to appreciate the responsibility that they’re taking on. So many helpless animals are left abandoned when their family decides they just can’t handle the responsibility.
That was exactly what happened in the case of Kai, a sweet Shar-Pei puppy about two or three years old, who was discovered alone in a train station in Scotland. Kai’s previous owners left him with a small suitcase filled with a few of his things.
Authorities found food, a bowl, a toy, and a pillow inside the suitcase.
They traced the pup’s microchip to his former owners who claimed to have sold him back in 2013.
His former owners say they sold him on the English website Gumtree, a site similar to Craigslist, and have no information on the location of those who purchased Kai. Abandoning animals is punishable in Scotland under the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006, but authorities are still searching for those cruel enough to leave this cutie on his own.
Inspector Stewart Taylor of the Scottish SPCA hopes that this sad situation at least serves as a lesson in impulse animal buying. Above all, Kai deserves a loving, responsible family – we hope he finds his true forever home soon enough.
