LEADING DOG REHOMING charity Dogs Trust has suspended adoptions until early January, as it says Christmas is the worst time of the year to introduce a puppy to a new home.

The charity was busy this weekend caring for a litter of nine puppies that had been surrendered to it in Dublin, the Irish Independent reported.

Dogs Trust has been running a campaign urging people to think twice before buying a dog this Christmas time, after 756 people contacted the charity within three months of last Christmas to relinquish their dogs.

So, today we’re asking you: Should there be a ban on buying dogs around Christmas time?
