NHS has done Britain proud in Rohingya refugee crisis ‘I just can’t believe it’s real and he is actually gone. I have five other dogs, but our home has never felt so empty and quiet. ‘It’s really strange. The other dogs are silent which isn’t like them at all, they’re usually always up and playing around but they’ve just been laying down.

The pup grew a global fan base for his peculiar looks – winning accolades across the world – and also previously won a ‘most heroic hound’ award.
