But he will not be left alone. He has six other dogs – including Luna, whose puppies are the ones pictured here with Mr Middleton, 33, and his fiancee Alizee Thevenet.

Mr Middleton wrote on Instagram: ’56 days ago you were born, 56 days of early starts, lots of poo and half eaten socks but 56 days of pure joy watching you grow. But now it’s time for you to go. 

‘I am sad to see you go, and yes I might cry, but it will be with happiness as each of your new homes are bursting with love.

‘You might be scared at first, that’s OK. Just be yourself and you will never understand how much happiness you will bring to your new families and all the people you meet.
