A lot of different things end up in lost property bins - phones, wallets, sunglasses.

But Dublin Airport has got a new category to add to that - puppies.

The small dog, thought to be about six weeks old, was discovered beside the multi-story car park at Terminal 1.

He was found by a member of the public at around 9.30am Wednesday.

Dublin Airport say the puppy "is playful, content, fit and healthy."

The dog was in a blue plastic box with a blanket. He has since been sent to a local vet for a check-up.

"The person who found him initially thought it was a baby, as there was movement", a daa spokesperson told Newstalk.com.

The owner of the puppy is asked to contact Dublin Airport Lost Property on 01-814-5555 - or else contact the airport on Facebook or Twitter.

A veterinary nurse will look after him and he will be re-homed if no owner emerges.
