Puppies everywhere! This is why there are so many in Dublin today

You may have noticed that today Dublin city has seen a huge influx of very cute, and very large puppies.

While they are not of the fluffy variety- as they are in fact papier mâché puppies- they still have people stopping for photos and sharing them on social media. 

The pups are part of a campaign called The Puppy Promise. 

The puppies are a reminder from Dog’s Trust Ireland that a puppy is not just for Christmas. The puppies who have even been joining commuters on the LUAS today appear to look quite sad.

While they do look cute, it is worth noting that they are a reminder of the countless animals who are abandoned every year. 

The rather glum looking puppies have been spotted about the city with social media users sharing their photos of the canine props to help spread the message. 

The charity point out on their website that every November they see a huge increase in the amount of puppies advertised for sale. In January the amount of dogs then abandoned will also inevitably spike. So, they are asking people to make the Puppy Promise
