Joyous moment Dublin primary student is surprised with new puppy

This is the moment Cian arrives home from school with a look of complete shock, after seeing the latest addition to his family.

After losing their 11-year-old family dog last year, Cian's father was determined to adopt another dog – despite increased demand on dog shelters since lockdown.

Cian's family had started the process of adopting a new pet in July, but the clip shows that it was worth the wait.

Dogs Trust have launched their ‘Sold A Pup’ campaign, highlighting the cruelty and deception currently surrounding the illegal selling and advertising of dogs and puppies. The charity is urging the public to support their petition to stop the illegal sale of dogs and help stamp out puppy farming in Ireland.
