The headline “Dog Dumped at Train Station With Suitcase” has very likely gone viral among animal lovers and welfare organizations, and I have no doubt that dozens if not hundreds of people have already volunteered to adopt the 2-3 year old shar-pei named Kai found “at a Scottish train station next to a suitcase filled with his belongings,” according to Scottish SPCA Inspector Stewart Taylor. In Scotland, it’s an offense to abandon an animal.

Kai’s suitcase reportedly contained a dog bowl, food, a pillow and toy; the dog’s name Kai was learned through his microchip, which took the investigation back to the original owner who sold the dog in 2013, but that owner (perhaps s/he was the breeder?) did not have any information on the new owner.
