Perhaps Kai the abandoned Shar Pei has sparked a trend of dogs being abandoned in train stations and now alleyways. That is exactly what has been happening the last few days in England.
First, a black Staffordshire Terrier mix was found tied to railings with just a plastic container of water. The dog could be heard whimpering, likely for its owner to return. After the dog was noticed as abandoned the dog warden came and collected the dog. They are currently trying to trace the owner, who was seen leaving in a taxi.
Then a dog of the same breed was found tied up in a dark London alley on Valentine’s Day, with some twine, a towel and a piece of paper. Aptly named Valentino, he was lucky enough to be adopted a day after being abandoned.
