Gardai are appealing for help trying to reunite a stolen dog with its owner.
The springer spaniel was found earlier this month in Limerick, along with a second dog.
On July 13th, Gardai followed up on reported suspicious activity and spoke with two men in a car park on the Old Dublin Road in Limerick.

The men had two springer spaniels, which were eventually seized after being described as very nervous and cowering in their cages.
After being told both dogs were microchipped, a local vet verified that they weren't, while one of the men produced documentation to Henry Street station which Gardai believe to have been fraudulent.
One of the dogs, Jake, has since been reunited with his owner in Cork, after it was believed he was stolen on the 24th June.
The second dog, which is around 18 months old, is currently in a local shelter as Gardai look for his owner.
