The DSPCA is urging people not to fuel animal cruelty by buying dogs as Christmas presents.

Earlier this week 38 dogs were seized from tiny cages in apartments on Dublin's west side, many of them covered in urine and faeces.

The animal welfare charity believes they were being bred for sale.

Spokeswoman Gillian Bird says people should walk away from dodgy dog dealers at any time of the year.
