Dilyn is constantly humping people's legs in Downing Street, Boris reveals

Boris Johnson today revealed that he struggles to control the 'romantic urges' of his dog Dilyn.

The PM complained that his and Carrie's pet is 'endlessly' up 'on people's legs' in Downing Street.  

The plaintive appeal came as Mr Johnson chatted to police dog handlers after witnessing a display by the Surrey force's canine officers.

The premier was admiring the behaviour of German Shepherd Zorro at the police base in Guidford when he asked: 'Do you have to worry about his romantic urges?'

After being told there were no such concerns with Zorro, Mr Johnson shook his head and said 'my dog is endless…. on people's legs'.

Home Secretary Priti Patel, accompanying the Prime Minister on his visit, laughed as Mr Johnson explained the situation.

The Prime Minister also chuckled as he recalled the activities of his pet.

Jack Russell-cross Dilyn was brought into Downing Street as a puppy by Mr Johnson and his wife Carrie in 2019.

Mr Johnson is regularly seen out running with his pet on a lead.

At times he has seemed to be struggling to control the animal as it showed an interest in ducks or passers by.
