Dumped pups to spend their Christmas in animal hospital
Three helpless puppies are searching for new homes after they were heartlessly dumped near a play park.
The abandoned black and white dogs were discovered in a small cardboard box in freezing weather by a shocked dog walker.
The Ulster Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals uploaded a video of the adorable animals - who appear to be a few weeks old - to its Facebook page.
The USPCS said the three pups will be needing a loving home soon.
"It's the most wonderful time of the year," the charity posted.
"Not for these poor little pups it isn't.
"Found by a caring dog walker, these pups appear to have been dumped and abandoned beside a children's play park in Co Armagh.
"They will spend Christmas in the care of the USPCA Animal Hospital before being put up for adoption in the new year."
