Simon Cowell introduces the world to new rescue dog from Barbados

Simon fell in love with the Caribbean mutt at a charity auction back in December

Simon Cowell has added a new member to his family - and it is of the furbaby kind.

The music mogul has published a series of black and white photos of each of his dogs, including his new rescue dog Daisy.

Daisy is a terrier mix who Simon met back in December while hosting a dog charity auction in Barbados with his partner Lauren Silverman.

Daisy was one of the dogs up for adoption at the event, and Simon took to her so much that he arranged for her to be flown back to live with him in the UK.

She had originally been discovered abandoned with her two puppies on the Caribbean island, and nursed back to health by dog charity K9 Friends.

Simon captioned the professional photograph with "Meet Daisy. She's a rescue dog all the way from Barbados."

He already has three other dogs, whose portraits have also been shared on his Instagram account.

There's Yorkshire terriers Squiddly and Diddly, who are believed to be siblings, and then his late mother's dog, another Yorkshire terrier, called Freddie.

The X Factor judge is well known for being an avid dog lover and has supported many dog charities through the years.

He's even spoken of his desire to clone his dogs once they've passed.

He told The Sun on Sunday last year that he has arranged to have his dogs cloned through a cloning company based in South Korea.

He told the tabloid: "I am 100 per cent cloning the dogs, all of them.

“We’ve thoroughly looked into it, got all the details and I can prove to you I’m going to clone them. There is documentation.

“I am doing it because I cannot bear the thought of them not being around."

Each dog cloning is estimated to be around £60,000 each.
