A puppy has been detained for being brought into the country illegally.

Dolly the Dachshund is in quarantine with Suffolk Trading Standards after she was brought over from Romania.

Dolly is eight weeks old and has only received the Nobivac DHP vaccine and is not vaccinated against rabies.

The UK is currently rabies-free and this is why there are importation controls for pets. 

All dogs must also be microchipped and vaccinated to enter the UK, with proof of at least 12 weeks of age.
