A Golden Lurcher animal is running wild in Naas for several days, according to RTE's Liveline programme.
Presenter Joe Duffy claimed that the dog had been seen wandering around the town for the past 8 days.
The animal has a piece of light rope around its neck.
Some locals have seen the dog around their areas and have left out food and water but it seems terrified of people and too nervous to approach.
One resident said: "He looks hungry and exhausted. But he is petrified of humans."
Joe Duffy appealed for help from listeners to find the owner.
