AN ANIMAL WELFARE charity has issued an appeal after a dog was abandoned at a railway station, along with a suitcase of his possessions.

The male shar-pei crossbreed, named Kai, was discovered tied to railings outside Ayr station in Scotland.

He had with him a suitcase containing a pillow, a toy, a food bowl and some food.

Kai had previously been sold on Gumtree, according to the Scottish SPCA which was alerted after he was found on January 2.

Inspector Stewart Taylor said:

The dog is microchipped and we were able to find out his name is Kai. We contacted the owner registered to the microchip, who stated they had sold Kai on Gumtree in 2013. Unfortunately they could not tell us the address of the person who bought him. This case highlights the potential consequences of selling an animal online.

The charity is now appealing for anyone who may have information to come forward. Taylor said:

Regardless of the fact Kai was left with his belongings, this was still a cruel incident and we are keen to identify the person responsible. If anyone can help we would ask them to get in touch as soon as possible.

He said Kai was “two to three years old, and is a lovely dog with a nice nature”.

Kai will now be looked after until a permanent home is found. Contact details for the Scottish SPCA are here.
