Gardaí in Tallaght are appealing for the owner of a lost dog to come forward.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Tallaght garda station on 01-6666-000.
It comes as pet owners are being advised to keep their furry friends indoors this Halloween.
It says all pets should be inside in a quiet part of the house with doors and windows closed, and a radio or TV turned on.
They should also have access to food and water.
Owners are asked to avoid areas where bonfires and fireworks are likely - early morning or afternoon walks are advised.
They're also being asked to lead walk dogs out for toilet breaks, and check the garden is secure in case they get spooked.
And another important piece of advice from the DSPCA: Don’t force your pets to dress up if they don’t like it.
