Following the DSPCA seizure of 13 puppies and five female dogs from the back of a rental van at Dublin Port they are seeking help in reuniting the animals with their owners.
The puppies, which are a mixture of cross breed terriers and collies, are seven-weeks-old.
The five adult female dogs, are not neutered and all of breeding age.
This is the third seizure in the past six days from Dublin Port and the DSPCA say they are concerned about the adult dogs.
The DSPCA want the public to share the photos in the hope of identifying the origin of these dogs.
The dogs consist of three terrier cross females about three/four years of age, a very small sized female German Pointer aged about nine months and a female Springer Spaniel aged about three-years-old.
All the dogs apart from the German pointer appear to have had pups.
If anyone has lost a female dog matching these photos, please email [email protected] with your contact phone number and photo of your missing dog.
