A litter of eight-week-old puppies has been seized on its way out of Ireland to the UK.

Revenue officers found the six puppies in the boot of a car at Dublin Port this afternoon.

The DSPCA said they had no access to water and would have remained in the boot of the car for the entire ferry journey. It warned that this is “not an acceptable method of transport for any animal.”

The puppies were not microchipped and the owner of the car was not able to provide any vaccination certs or relevant paperwork.

The mixture terrier crosses were surrendered at the port and they are now in the care of the DSPCA.

They will be placed in foster care until they are ready to be rehomed.
