Adorable pups rescued from tiny crates that left them with no air, food or water

In shocking images, adorable puppies were seen stuffed into tiny crates without air, food and water before they were finally rescued.

The petrified pups had been crammed together into the black crate by smugglers and were luckily discovered at a port in Dublin, Ireland.

According to reports, the tiny dogs were discovered in two separate batches during routine checks before they were due to sail to the UK.

Dublin Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said four Jack Russell pups were rescued at around 1:45am on Friday, reports The Sun.

Alongside this, six terrier crosses around eight weeks old were discovered on Thursday in a car boot.

Their owner "could not provide any vaccination certs or the relevant paperwork required to transport dogs out of Ireland", reports the DSPCA.

They added: "Files are being prepared for both cases and will be submitted to the Department of Public Prosecution.

"All ten puppies are in the care of the DSPCA and will not be available for rehoming yet.

"Please do not send in emails or message us as we have been inundated with offers of homes.

"Instead check out for the dogs we currently have available for rehoming.

"The DSPCA would like to thank Revenue officers at Dublin Port for their vigilance and their continued efforts to end this cruel trade."

This comes as last week at least 5,000 pets have been found dead in cardboard boxes at a shipping facility in China.

The animals included rabbits, guinea pigs, cats and dogs, which had all been held in plastic or metal cages wrapped in cardboard boxes with breathing holes.

Their tragic deaths are likely to have been a result of a miscommunication in the supply chain of China's thriving mass-breeding industry, it has been reported.

An investigation into the horror discovery has now been launched after only a couple hundred animals were saved.
