Carrie Symonds responds to rumours she is planning on ditching rescue dog Dilyn

Boris Johnson’s fiancée has poo-pooed reports she is planning on dumping the Downing Street dog because the “sickly” pup has not got the hang of toilet training.

Sources close to the couple, who are expecting their first child together this summer, claimed that Dilyn would be quietly re-homed before the baby arrives in a few months’ time.

The insider quipped: “I’m not sure that dog is going to make it through the next reshuffle.”

It was claimed that the hound left a mess throughout the couple’s apartment and that “for a while, there was dog sh** everywhere in the flat.”

But Carrie, who is engaged to the Prime Minister after he proposed last month, hit back at the claims.

The 31-year-old said: “What a load of total cr**! There has never been a happier, healthier and more loved dog than our Dilyn.”

She fumed: “The people behind this story should be ashamed of themselves.”

The dog has lived with the Prime Minister and Carrie in Downing Street since last September after they adopted it from the Friends of Animals Wales shelter in Pontypridd, south Wales.

Animal-lover Carrie tweeted at the time: “Thanks to the wonderful Eileen who rescued Dilyn after she got a tip-off that he was to be dumped by a puppy dealer because he was born with a crooked jaw. Eileen fixed his little jaw and saved his life. She is a hero.”

Some sources have also claimed that the dog mess just added to the chaos in the couple’s flat which one anonymous insider said looks “like a frat house

The insider added that they saw “clothes all over the place and takeaway cartons. The place was a mess.”
