The Cork Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (CSPCA) have re-issed their message that 'a dog is for life, not just for Christmas' after nine German sheppard cross puppies were found by the organisation.
The dogs are in very good health and will be microchipped, certified, vaccinated, flead and wormed, and licenced before they will be put up for adoption after Christmas.
The group warned against getting surprise presents of a puppy this year, and every year, and make sure to do your homework when deciding to get a dog.
