Boris Johnson has expressed concern about the amorous activities of his rescue dog Dilyn

The Prime Minister complained about his pet exercising his romantic urges “on people’s legs” in Downing Street.

Mr Johnson was speaking to police dog handlers after witnessing a display by the Surrey force’s canine officers.

At Surrey Police headquarters in Guildford he was chatting to one officer about the behaviour of German Shepherd Zorro.

“Do you have to worry about his romantic urges,” the Prime Minister asked.

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.
