Rangers at Glenfield Road Animal Shelter are hoping for a Christmas miracle after a mother and her nine pups were dumped at the facility last week.
The wolf-stag hound-cross puppies are about eight to nine weeks old and are available for adoption, along with mum Chrissy.
“We’ve named the mother Chrissy in the spirit of the festive season,” Manager Regulatory Services Greg Minehan said.
“There’s six boys and three girls in the litter, mostly with brindle markings and one pup that is mostly black.
“If anyone is looking for a pet and you’re able to provide the space and exercise the breed requires, then please come and visit our team at the shelter.”
The Glenfield Road Animal Shelter is open to the public Monday to Saturday between 1pm and 4.15pm.
