The chihuahua pup didn't have a pet passport

A puppy has been seized by Revenue Officers at Dublin Port.

The officers found the chihuahua pup earlier this morning.

The alarm was raised when a UK national was stopped and questioned.

The little pup didn't have a pet passport and wasn't microchipped either, which is required by law.

The DSPCA is now looking after the dog, where he is receiving urgent veterinary attention.

A follow-up investigation is underway.
