The puppy found at Dublin Airport last week has found a new home for Christmas

The ISPCA recently issued a list of warning signs for puppy farms, adding that pets never make good Christmas presents.

A TINY WHITE puppy found in Dublin Airport last week has been successfully re-homed by a member of airport staff.

Last Thursday, the puppy was handed into lost property at Dublin Airport after being found behind a multi-storey carpark near Terminal 1.

According to a statement from Dublin Airport, a member of the airport’s security team has now taken in the six-week old pup, renaming him Milo.

It was recommended he be housed with another dog, and luckily the security worker already has a pre-existing dog as a pet.

Dublin Airport spokeswoman Siobhan O’Donnell said they were “overwhelmed” with offers on social media from members of the public offering to take Sneachta.

She added:

We also received a number of blankets and toys for him, and these have gone with Milo to his new home.

The ISPCA recently issued a warning about buying a dog at Christmas, advising that many puppy sellers are farms breeding dogs in “appalling conditions”.

Pets never make good Christmas presents, the charity added, and the introduction or purchase of a pet must be planned carefully.

The ISPCA also gave a list of warning signs when buying a puppy.
