Daithi O Shea, Maura Durrane and Catherine Gallagher with the Today Show Puppy

RTÉ Today with Maura and Daithi have adopted an eight-week old puppy and they want you to name him!

The show have teamed up with Irish Guide Dogs to raise awareness about the work they do and encourage people to become puppy raisers.

The eight-week-old heart-melter will come visit the studio from time to time with updates from it’s new puppy raiser and puppy cuddles of course.

Maura visited the Irish Guide Dogs Cork HQ earlier this week to pick out the pup and as he’s from the Y litter, he must be named something beginning with Y.
