Sadiq Khan has a new puppy and the internet can’t handle the cuteness
She’s pretty adorable.
Sadiq Khan made a pretty important announcement on Sunday afternoon: he is now the proud owner of a puppy.
The little puppy, named Luna, was unveiled to the world in a Twitter post by her new owner, along with a picture showing London’s mayor cuddling his new pet.
Saadiya and I are very excited to announce a new addition to the family...— Sadiq Khan (@SadiqKhan) November 26, 2017

Most Twitter users were besotted with the golden pooch…
Sweet doggo! Many years of happiness to you all.— DED (@DunPlayin) November 26, 2017
She is beautiful. Love her well. Few greater joys in life than the companionship of a dog.— Andrew Harries #FBPE (@AndrewCHarries) November 26, 2017
The best decision you have EVER made 😍😍😍😍😍😍— jessica de melo (@x17011995) November 26, 2017
… but others wanted to know if Khan had adopted a shelter puppy or bought from a breeder. As yet Khan has not revealed where Luna came from.
Purchasing a puppy at Christmas, really is this the example to set as our Mayor? Many senior dogs dumped in London rescue centres @themayhew to be replaced with a cute puppy at this time of year. You're entitled to do what you want for your family but please don't broadcast it.— Jane Buchanan (@dogandbaglady) November 26, 2017
Gosh lovely as this is would this not have been a great chance to take a dog from Battersea or any of the many rescue centres across our country and abroad. Hey it maybe a rescue but still...sorry.— 🇪🇺Limehouse podcast #FBPE🇪🇺 (@limehousepod) November 26, 2017
Regardless of the naysayers, the tweet was one of his biggest in recent weeks, garnering over 300 retweets in the hour after it was posted.
