This puppy has been handed into lost property at Dublin Airport

He was found in a blue plastic container near Terminal 1.

A PUPPY WAS handed into lost property at Dublin Airport this morning.

He was found in a blue plastic container near Terminal 1.

A spokesperson for Dublin Airport told TheJournal.ie that he was found behind the multistory carpark at around 9.30am.

Staff at the airport are now appealing for information about the dog.

He has been taken to the vet for a check up.

It comes at a time of the year when people are warned not to buy dogs for Christmas.

The ISPCA recently issued a warning about how the run up to Christmas is “the busiest time for rogue breeders advertising puppies for sale”.

It also urged buyers  to beware and understand where these puppies are originating from, warning that many puppies are bred in appalling conditions, are not vaccinated or microchipped and may be in need of veterinary care.
