A litter of nine puppies from a RSPCA branch in West Yorkshire have been aptly named after Santa's reindeers.

The pups have been named Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolf.

The dachshund called Olive is nursing nine puppies - all of which are looking for new homes in the new year.

The whole family will be looked after by the RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and District Branch until they are ready for adoption.

The centre will be accepting applications until December 10th and only successful applicants will be contacted.

The successful applicant must be flexible to attend the centre for viewings, training sessions with our behaviorists, socialisation sessions and adoption appointments throughout the month of December.
