Elizabeth Hurley dazzles fans as she cuddles new puppy in a shimmering bikini

ELIZABETH Hurley set pulses racing as she posed with her new pet puppy.

The 53-year-old actress stripped down to a glitzy bikini as she cradled her black cocker spaniel puppy, Ava, in her arms, earlier today.

The Royals star captioned the Instagram photo: "Bikini weather and puppy: what a perfect day."

The post has attracted a lot of attention from fans as it has racked up over 12,000 likes.

One fan commented: "Beautiful puppies", another read "So good to see you so happy. Much love to the two of you."

A third wrote: "So beautiful."

Just one day previous Liz shared a separate photo of her four legged friend in her arms, although she was slightly more covered up in a navy blue cami top and sunglasses, which read: "Happy days are here again…. meet baby Ava."

Liz decided to get a new puppy shortly after the death of her dogs Emily and black labrador Raja.

She shared a sweet photo in tribute to her late pooch earlier this month, which read: "We buried our beautiful Emily today. When it rains it pours. Semper Fidelis."

A separate post read: "Goodbye to my beloved Raja. May you chase bunnies for all eternity in doggy heaven. You were the best and most loyal friend for eleven beautiful years."

Liz and her son Damian  are known for their love of dogs and also have a white Labrador called Hector and a prize winning spaniel called Mia.

The 17 year old actor gushed about his late pet on his online platform.

He wrote: "Resst easy little one heaven gained the sweetest, most loyal and kind dog today, will think of and love you forever and always x"
