Gardaí are looking for the owner of a “friendly and tame” dog who was found wandering the Kilkenny area.

The pup, believed to be a Border Collie cross or a similar breed, was found by a woman in Garringreen estate off the Johnswell Road in Kilkenny on Sunday.

The male dog is untagged and seems to have been “startled by the fireworks” taking place on Halloween night.

Gardaí confirmed that the pooch remained in their custody for some time last night and was treated to some canned dog food.

In a social media post, gardaí have appealed for anyone who may know the owner of the dog to contact Kilkenny Garda Station.

Sharing some photos of the adorable pup, the post read: “This poor Collie was picked up by the lads a few minutes ago in the Garringreen estate off the Johnswell Road.

“A kind lady found him and called us. He seems to have been startled by the fireworks and is currently in our custody. If you can assist please contact Kilkenny Garda Station on 0567775000.”
 

A follow-up post showed that the animal was in good hands and read: “Don't worry we haven't started feeding our regular prisoners with tinned dog food, it's tonight's guest, an extremely friendly and tame Border Collie Cross or similar.

“We checked him and he is untagged but must have a home somewhere. Maybe you know the owner and can assist. Calls to Kilkenny Garda Station on 0567775000.”
