Sailor has been signed over to Cardiff Dogs Home by a rescue, and he is absolutely stunning!
As he isn't fully vacc'd, we couldn't take Sailor into the garden for his pics, but we took a gentle stroll down to the river bank...
And even though we couldn't let him off-lead, we did see his character and cheeky side! Nice 'tongue out Tuesday' pic Sailor!
We offered Sailor the pick of our little box of good things! Treats and toys - and Sailor immediately chose his prize!
Sailor was completely captivated by his new toy!
There was lots of nuzzling going on, but no soft toys were harmed...
Because it would be verrrrry wrong to hurt the bunny eh Sailor?
We're looking forward to getting to know Sailor a bit better over the coming days. Walkers - it's over to you!

Ooooh Sailor! I must admit that before walking dogs at the Home I'd never been overly enamored by pointy dogs, but a common side effect of walking at CDH is falling in love with every dog breed ever And boy is Sailor a wonderful ambassador for his breed! I met him briefly on Saturday when a prospective forever family were visiting with their resident dog and just knew I'd have to take him out next time we were down. Sailor is a handsome leggy gentleman with a softest fur and sweetest eyes! Like many Greyhounds, walking Sailor is like walking a cloud. You might as well be using one of those invisible dog leads for all the weight you feel on the other end! Who'd want an invisible dog when you have this gorgeous boy around though?! He seemed a little unsure of us as we walked down the lane so we put his mind at ease with a few select treats and he was a little more endeared to us afterwards - gently touching our hands every so often with that handsome pointy nose as we walked. At one point Dad wandered away to read a sign and I kept walking towards some shade. Sailor seemed torn between following me and not leaving Dad, so he settled for walking right by my side but constantly looking back at Dad until he rejoined us.
For a change of scenery and somewhere with a little more shade we headed over the road instead of towards Grangemoor Park, and Sailor had a good old time watching the people working on their boats. Seems his name choice was quite apt! We stopped in the shade for some water and treats and Sailor was as graceful and gentle as ever. No nibbled fingers around this man! He also enjoyed a good old pointy 'lean', and while he might not be the sort of dog to bounce up and give your face a good wash, he's very cuddly and affectionate in his own gentle way. Sailor has some amazing expressions and definitely a bit of a cheeky side judging by that smile. I can't praise him enough but I have a feeling I won't have to for much longer, because this gorgeous man will definitely not be hanging around for long. Whoever gets Sailor in their lives is going to be very lucky indeed!

Another fabulous write up Sian! We had the absolute pleasure of Sailors company this morning together with the gorgeous Doris. The dogs were so placid and very happy to stroll along the river. Sometimes dogs just make you relaxed and Sailor is certainly one of these. He's just the right height to rest your hand on his back (which he loves) while you're walking. He has a lovely expressive face and beautiful colouring, he really is the perfect dog for someone. In fact, him and Doris were the perfect pair, they got on so well. Good luck Sailor, I'm sure you will sail away to a lovely new home very soon.
