Dogs Seized At Dublin Port

Revenue officers have discovered four puppies and a young dog at Dublin Port.

The puppies, approximately 12 weeks old, and a young dog were discovered when two Irish men who were travelling separately to the UK were stopped and questioned.

The men did not have pet passports for the dogs as required under the Animal Health and Welfare Act 2013.

All the dogs were transferred into the care of the DSPCA who are conducting a follow-up investigation. Revenue works closely with the DSPCA and other bodies to combat illegal puppy trading.

Anyone with information about smuggling is urged to contact Revenue's Confidential Freephone number 1800 295 295.
