A six-week-old puppy that was found abandoned in a plastic box in Dublin Airport has found a new home just in time for Christmas.

The pup, named Sneachta because of his snow white colour, was found at the back of the airport car park on Thursday last week.

DAA staff took the dog in and launched an online campaign to find the little guy a new home. 

Siobhan O'Donnell, from the DAA said: "The puppy was about six-weeks-old.  I held it myself, tiny little thing and it was whimpering and distressed.  One of the Airport Police had given it some of his porridge and some milk and he lapped it up."

After posting pictures of Sneachta on Facebook, the DAA was inundated with kind responses. One user wrote: "If i was there I would gladly adopt him," while another added "hope the wee fella gets a loving new owner for Christmas."

Thankfully, this story had a happy ending as Sneachta has since been re-homed with a member of the airport's security team and has been renamed Milo.
