VoiceFinally, some news from Downing Street the whole country can unite behind (unless you’re strictly a cat person).
The Latest Downing Street Development Is Furry, Cute And Nothing To Do With Brexit
Boris Johnson appears to have received the newest member of his team on Monday morning, a rather adorable 15-week-old male Jack Russell-cross.
Either that, or he has some strong views on what might happen to veterinary medicine in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
The as-yet-unnamed dog was carried into No10 with his handlers from Friends of Animals Wales (FOAW) in Rhondda.The Downing Street Dog has arrived pic.twitter.com/ps4sztqUpw— Peter Henley (@BBCPeterH) September 2, 2019He was rescued after it was abandoned by puppy farmers. 
But the dog will face an immediate obstacle to settling in.
“It would have to get along with Larry”, the Downing Street cat and chief mouser to the Cabinet Office, an insider told HuffPost UK in July.
The cat was rescued from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in 2011 by then-PM David Cameron.
And he has been caught scrapping with Palmerston, the Foreign Office cat who lives next door.
A statement from FOAW said: “To think our little pup started his life in a Welsh puppy farm and was destined for an uncertain existence at the hands of a puppy dealer, but is now going to be with people who absolutely adore him is a dream come true.
“This little man will want for nothing in his life, what could be better than that?”Related... Tony Blair Hints He Would Back Corbyn To Block A No-Deal Brexit Boris Johnson's Burka Comments Preceded 'Significant Spike' In Islamophobic Incidents
