It’s likely that your beloved doggo has a brother from an ocean mother. And it’s a sea puppy, the most adorable marine animal that is closely related to canines. In fact, seals and dogs come from the same caniformia suborder, which literally means “dog-like.” And that alone explains why we love seals so much.
Unfortunately, the current ecological crisis and plastic pollution are putting marine animals in danger. The team of Seal Rescue Ireland, a non-profit based in Courtown, Co. Wexford, is playing a crucial role in rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing sea puppies back to their ocean home. Every day, they share the most wholesome pics of rescued seals to their 26.5K Instagram followers. Let’s get ready for a cuteness overload with the mermaid puppies you didn’t know you needed.
