The reason the dog has spent half his life looking for a home is very superficial, said Andrew Dymburt, a spokesman for the rescue.

"People are often scared of big dogs," Dymburt shared.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We want to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Hope, a sweet girl who is ready to be someone's loyal companion.

Early last year, Hope was saved from a kill shelter and transferred to a boarding facility by a rescuer. Sadly, that rescuer ran out of money and told the boarding facility that Hope was on her own. The facility contacted the L.A. Animal Rescue, who took her in and is now trying to find the dog a forever hoem.

"I'm very loving, sensitive, polite and appreciative," says her bio. "I think my parents were Dachshund and Staffordshire terriers. I am petite, maybe 35 pounds."

Kai has baggage.

A brown suitcase, in fact, which was curiously left beside him when he was abandoned at the Ayr railway station in Scotland on Friday.
