Dozens of puppies have reportedly been seized at Dublin Port.
According to 98FM, Gardaí believe the pups were being smuggled out of the country illegally, since none of the animals had a pet passport.
They were all Labrador/Collie cross breeds and aged at just 10 weeks old.
All of the puppies are now in the care of the DSPCA, and will be available for adoption within the next week.
In this year alone, Gardaí have seized almost 500 dogs.
