These two little puppies were seized from a woman boarding a ferry destined for Holyhead
The DSPCA took to Facebook on the 6th of March to inform people of two pugalier type puppies that had been seized from a woman on her way to Holyhead.
The passenger was interviewed by Department of Agriculture Veterinary Surgeon who requested the required export paperwork for the puppies. However, the puppies did not have pet passports nor were they microchipped as required by law, according to the DSCPCA.
As a result, they were seized by the Department Vet and placed in the care of the DSPCA.
The woman, who was in possession of the puppies, and her two children had arrived by ferry at Dublin port earlier this morning. The passenger claimed she had purchased the puppies from an online seller and that she had made arrangements to collect the puppies in the Dublin area.
In their post the DSPCA urged people to ensure that their pets have an up to date Pet Passport with records of vaccinations, microchips and veterinary cert.
They said this it is important that the origin of all puppies and dogs should be declared and be verifiable.

There is currently an investigation under way, and no further news about the puppies has since been given.
