A dog whose story attracted media attention around the world after he was abandoned at a railway station with a suitcase full of his belongings has found a new home. Kai, a shar-pei crossbreed, was rescued by the Scottish SPCA after he was discovered tied to a railing at Ayr Railway Station in early January. His hard-luck story prompted hundreds of offers of help. His new owner said that taking Kai home was “a bit like winning the lottery”. Ian Russell, 52, a self-employed hydraulic engineer from Newton Mearns, East Renfrewshire, said he was looking forward to getting to know his new pet as he left the charity’s rescue centre in Glasgow.Picture: Rex Features
