Carrie Symonds, Boris Johnson's fiancée, has denied media reports that the prime minister wants Dilyn the dog to be rehomed.
The Times reports that the Jack Russell adopted by Johnson and Symonds from a Welsh rescue centre could be rehomed in the summer when the couple have their first child.
The dog is said to have been a 'sickly animal' with one Whitehall source telling the newspaper: 'I'm not sure that dog is going to make it through the next reshuffle.'
The same source claimed that the pair had grown tired of the mess that was created in the apartment above Number 11 Downing Street.
'For a while there was dog shit everywhere in the flat,' they added.

'What a load of total crap!' she tweeted. 'There has never been a happier, healthier and more loved dog than our Dilyn.'
