Done Deal has suspended the advertising of dogs on its website due to the recent spike in animal theft.

The online marketplace says it works closely with animal welfare groups to meet the appropriate standards.

Animals can still be bought and sold on the site, however, the dog section has been temporarily removed as Done Deal works on “further solutions to improve animal welfare and in light of unprecedented demand in Ireland”.

It says it has taken a number of measures this year to improve transparency such as microchip verification.
