Remember Kai the Shar Pei, who was abandoned with a suitcase of his belongings in Scotland's Ayr railway station last month? He's nabbed himself a new home!
Kai's story captured the hearts of countless readers – so much so that the Scottish SPCA received hundreds of applications from potential adoptive owners. They eventually landed on 52-year-old engineer Ian Russell – and his story is also pretty heartbreaking.
“It feels like fate that I’ve been able to rehome Kai and I’m not usually a believer in things like that," Russell told the Daily Record. “My Dalmatian named Mica passed away just before Christmas and I was left heartbroken...I had her for 15 years and she was the apple of my eye. We pretty much spent 24 hours a day together. ...When I heard about Kai I knew the little guy needed a break but I never thought in a million years I’d get him."
And – you'll want to grab some tissues if you haven't already – check out the Daily Record's video of this inspiring duo as they meet for the first time. We love a happy ending!
