Do you know this dog?

He was handed into Pearse Street Garda Station today and they’re looking to find his owner.

Update: Tayto the dog has since been reunited with his owner.

GARDAÍ IN PEARSE Street, Dublin, are looking to find the owners of a small dog that was handed into the station earlier this evening.

The dog, named Tayto by the woman who found him, was handed in at around 5.30pm after being discovered wandering in the Pearse Street area.

He has already been taken to a vet but, unfortunately, this pooch is not micro-chipped. A garda source at Pearse Street said that the male terrier is approximately two or three-years-old.

When found, he was wearing a black collar with small silver bones on it, with the garda dealing with the case calling him “a bit of a bling dog”.

“He’s a lovely little dog, he was looking out the window of the garda car on the way to the vets at all the people going by”, they said.

Tayto is now being held at the Animal Welfare Clinic on Charlemont Street where he will be held for seven days before being rehomed. Anyone who recognises him can contact them on 01 6714303.
