Gardaí in Limerick are asking for the public's help in reuniting a stolen springer spaniel dog with his owners.

Gardaí in Limerick are appealing for information about a male springer spaniel dog, who they suspect was stolen from his owners. Asking for the public's help they're hoping that they'll be able to return the lost pup to his home.

Sharing a photo of the dog to social media, Gardaí revealed that they confiscated two springer spaniels over suspicions that they had been stolen.

"Gardaí recently spoke to two men who had two male springer spaniel dogs in their possession. When Gardaí enquired about their ownership of the dogs, the two men were unable to provide information that Gardaí were satisfied with.

Both dogs were very nervous, cowering in their cage, so a decision was made by Gardaí to seize them for their welfare pending the verification of ownership."

According to Gardaí, the older of the two dogs has since been reunited with his owner however, the younger pup remains in Garda care for now.

Advising people to take extra precautions to ensure the safety of their pets, Gardaí have noted a number of dog thefts throughout the country recently.

Anyone with information on who the dog may belong to is encouraged to get in touch with Henry Street Garda Station (061-212400).
