They brought the puppy to the veterinarian to have him checked out, and he was healthy. The vet advised that if no one came forward, and Sneachta was adopted out, he should go to a home with another dog to show him the ropes.

After a few days, an employee decided to give Sneachta a home, just in time for Christmas.

Now named Milo, the pup is busy getting into trouble, making friends and being loved.

“We were overwhelmed with offers on social media from many members of the public offering to take Sneachta,” Dublin Airport spokeswoman Siobhan O’Donnell said in a statement. “We also received a number of blankets and toys for him, and these have gone with Milo to his new home. We would like to thank everyone for their concern in relation to Sneachta/Milo and also for their generosity in offering to rehome him.”

O’Donnell suggested that people should donate to the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to help others like Milo.
