While abandoned luggage at airports and train stations is often cause for alarm, one suitcase left behind at Ayr train station in Scotland left passersby feeling sad and dejected. Why? Because there was a Sharpei-mix tied to it and it was obvious that he’d been abandoned. The sad dog was clearly in a low place sitting next to his bowl, a pillow, and some toys.
When his story made its way online, it touched hearts all around the world. The Glasgow SPCA reports getting dozens and dozens of calls from every corner of the globe inquiring about the adorable pooch.
Before he could be adopted, though, he needed surgery to fix his eyelids that folded outward. The SPCA started a crowdfunding campaign and raised the money super quickly!
“He comes to work with me every day and has a wee face he pulls if he thinks I’m going out without him,” Ian said after adopting the pup, who he calls Kai.
The two of them are basically inseparable now! What’s great is that Kai has inspired his new dad to get back into running, and these days, Ian’s putting his running shoes to work to raise money for the SPCA that brought his new BFF into his life. We’re so thrilled that Kai got the happy ending he always deserved! Share his story with all the animal lovers in your life.
