Do you know where your puppy was born?
13 puppies from a total of 4 different seizures were taken from Dublin Port yesterday evening by Customs, Gardaí and the DSPCA in a joint operation. The puppies, 11 females and 2 males are a Rottweilers, terriers and other small breeds and were destined for the UK market.
Despite the DSPCA’s messages and the previous seizures, those involved in the illegal puppy trade are ignoring the laws, attempting to smuggle dogs and puppies out of Ireland without the correct paper work or vaccination records.
