This latest batch consists of four very young Jack Russell puppies which were found hidden in a black crate in the back of a van.   

The DSPCA said there was no paperwork or Pet Passports and the puppies had no access to food or water.

Files are being prepared for both cases and will be submitted to the DPP under the Animal Health and Welfare Act.
