The law on stray dogs is 15 days and they can be put down,therefore if someone doesn't come forth to you within that time,the puppy you can keep.
Microchip,vaccinate it and it's yours,however if you microchip you must ensure you register it at the Government Vet Dept so if it get's lost you would hope to get it returned. Be prepared to have to pay your local authority for an annual license around 20 euros.
Despite all that,remember if the dog gets lost having a microchip does not guarantee return as many places still do not have scanners,and if it looks like a pure breed someone may take it for themselves.
