Gardaí seized 32 dogs and 4horses during planned searches in the Baldoyle area of north Dublin.

The action was taken as part of ongoing investigations into illegal puppy farms and related criminal activity.

“The dogs seized included Chihuahuas, Jack Russells and Pugs. On examination, six of the Chihuahuas were found to be pregnant.”
