FIRST OF all, let me just say that if nobody claims this dog we're sure we could find him a good home somewhere...
The good lads behind the social media page of Dublin's tram service, the Luas, have launched an appeal after they came across some very interesting lost property-- an adorable little dog.
The ridiculously cute pup was found by Luas security staff wandering by the city's trams, and, worrying the animal was in danger of getting too close to one and getting injured, the security made the decision to pick him up and take him to safety.
After what we're sure was some serious belly rubs from the entire office, the dog got his pug-shot taken and his image was shared on Twitter, where the obvious dog-lover behind the page asked their 48,000 followers "Do you recognise this little angel?"
The small "tan & black" dog (very careful phrasing there by the social media officer) was found near Fettercain Luas and has since been brought to the Red Cow Luas depot, so if you've been missing your family pet, you know where to go.
Do you recognise this little angel? Small tan & black dog found wandering near Fettercairn Luas stop. Security staff were concerned this pup might be in danger wandering near the trams so brought it back to Red Cow Luas depot. Dog warden has been contacted to check if chipped. pic.twitter.com/S4dcRSQzDM

The tram service also said that they contacted the Dog Warden to check if the 'little angel' is microchipped, though many in the replies urged the Luas to hand him over to one of the local animal welfare charities-- while others urged them to simply give them the dog, because just look at that face.
If you recognise this pup or think you know who he belongs to, you can contact the Luas Red Cow depot on 1850 300 604 or get in touch via their Twitter.
