Offers flood in for 'canine Paddington'

Wednesday January 7th 2015

Millions of people have been enjoying the film adaptation of Paddington, the fictitious bear who was adopted by the Brown family after being found at the London railway station that gave him his name.

And now animal lovers from all over the world are coming forward to offer a home to a dog who was abandoned at a Scottish train station.

Kai, a shar-pei crossbreed, is being looked after by the Scottish SPCA at its Glasgow rehoming centre after he was found at Ayr railway station along with a suitcase containing his food and bowl, a toy, pillow and other belongings. Aged between two and three, Kai was found tied to railings outside the station.

His tale has made the news around the world, resulting in the Scottish SPCA being inundated with adoption offers. So far more than 100 people, some from as far away as California in the US, have contacted the organisation to offer Kai a home.

Kai's microchip has enabled the Scottish SPCA to establish that he was sold in 2013 through the Gumtree website. It is appealing for information to help trace the buyer while aiming to find Kai a new home in Scotland.
