Irish Rail search for owner of lost commuter dog who took the DART to Pearse this morning
Irish Rail are searching for a owner of a rogue, lost dog who boarded a DART and accidentally ended up in Pearse station.
The little guy got on the DART somewhere along Dublin's southside earlier this morning, eventually departing the train at Pearse.
The dog, who will no doubt by named something totally adorable by the end of today, is currently being looked after by station staff.

"This little customer boarded a DART on southside this morning and got off at Pearse," Irish Rail wrote on Twitter this morning.
"(He is) currently being looked after by station staff. Is it yours?"
There is no sign yet of the dog's owner coming forward, but we can only hope that the little guy is picked up soon.
This comes a few months after a dog made headlines around the world after landing into Heuston station on his own.
.@IrishRail staff are still looking for the owner of Hamish - the intrepid hound who took the 0846 from Sallins, Co Kildare to Dublin Heuston this morning. Staff member Ted Maher, who also volunteers at an animal sanctuary, is giving him a home for the night. @PA pic.twitter.com/pewRlfPMNA

The dog, whose real name was Tyson but had lovingly been called Hamish by staff, took the train all the way from Kildare to Dublin's Heuston station a few months back.
After an extensive social media campaign - and a slot on RTE News - he was eventually reunited with his owner.
Tyson was later chipped to ensure that if he ever wanders off again, he can be found.
