A dog has been found abandoned at a railway station alongside a suitcase of his belongings.
Kai, a male shar-pei crossbreed, was discovered tied to a railing outside Ayr station in Scotland on Friday - alongside luggage containing a pillow, toy, food and bowl.
The Scottish SPCA used a microchip to uncover his name and contacted the registered owner, who said he had sold Kai on Gumtree in 2013.
"Unfortunately they could not tell us the address of the person who bought him," inspector Stewart Taylor said.
This case highlights the potential consequences of selling an animal online as it often leads to the impulse buying of pets that people know very little about.
Abandoning an animal is an offence under the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006, with anyone found guilty facing a ban from keeping animals.
