This Handsome boy is Bob. Bob, I've a feeling you're going to have a few hearts fluttering
Bob is so good looking even the swans wanted to catch a glimpse!
Bob was such a good boy, he had a little look at them but on the whole all he really wanted to do was have a good sniff about, but Bob, it is polite to at least acknowledge your fans!
Inside the vet room, Bob showed us what he was all about, cuddles...
Treats (for which he did his sit, paw and was ever so gentle taking)
Yep, Bob is pretty much an all rounder! you don't even need to buy him a water bowl, he'll just help himself from the tap!
If you like 'em big softies, then you'll love Bob. I have a sneaky feeling your going to be very popular with our walkers Bob.

I took this handsome boy out for his first walk today, what an absolute beauty he is. I was head over heels after his photo shoot and today I love him even more. He is strong and does pull a bit but after spending 5 days stuck inside his kennel, that's not really a surprise!! He is a massive softy though and loves to stop for a fuss whenever he's got his nose out of sniffing in the bushes (which isn't very often). With permission from the staff I then took him into the garden. He had a great time stretching his legs. He did play a bit with toys and chase tennis balls when thrown but mostly was just happily running around on his own. Bob is amazing and is going to make a great addition to someone's household!!
Big Bob,Big Bob. Right lets get this out the way Bob is a big unit so don't be surprised if he pulls a bit,but boy is he an absolute gent he won me over immediately and does this boy love a fuss or what.
"You got my best side Pete?" "You betcha big lad!!"
He is the sweetest boy ever and once he settled he walked beautifully. When we passed other dogs he was excited but not aggressive. I found a little bit of praise and a good old smooth helped. Bob you are a beautiful big soul and hope I can take you out soon. Til next time big lad xx
I met Bob the other day and he sure is a charmer! He was straight in to say hello and ask for a fuss. Obviously was a keen body builder , those muscles could make anyone swoon, he's a bit too strong for me mind. I'm sure I'll see you around handsome!
Mud can be washed away , but great times live on in memories.
Wow walked Bob today, and boy is he a unit! He is a bit of a drag racer at the beginning, .... he is the racer, you are the drag!! I'm not small at 6'1" and over 15 stone but he tried his best to move me a little quicker than I really wanted to go. But having said all of that, lets not let this basic training need cloud what is a super dog. Bob Is a really handsome boy, he is excellent around other dogs, I guess when you are built like him you really don't need to prove anything! We passed numerous breeds on our walk without any show of aggression, no vocalisation and just a look to check what was going on Traffic no problem, including a speeding ambulance with sirens going, pedestrians, cyclists all ignored with aplomb. He loves a fuss though, really a great big softy...honest! In the right home, someone will spend a little time training him on the lead, and you will have a wonderful big guy full of fun and affection, couldn't ask for more really..
He reminds me of that scene in rocky 4 where he is training to fight the Russian and he pulling all these heavy things in the snow! Good luck Bob! We all know how beautiful you are, you don't need to be a body builder to prove it xx
Saving a dog won't change the world. But for that dog, the world changes forever
This boy is such a playful lad. He loves affection and greets everyone in the kennel well. He looks at you with his puppy dog eyes and you can't help but go and say hello. Believe me everyone needs a Bob in their life he is the best.

I took Bob out for half an hour on Saturday and we had a lovely walk. He is a strong boy who does take a little while to settle into his stride at his walkers pace and i think he would have enjoyed a longer walk than i was able to give him ! He does settle nicely and is a very enjoyable walk ! He passed people, bikes and other dogs and did not react to any other than showing an interest in saying hello. He does need a little 4 paws on the floor work, when initially greeting new people he did jump up to say hi though once he has said hello I did not experience him jumping up at all after that! He is an affectionate boy who seemed to really enjoy when we stopped for some cuddles.
I didn't manage to get any pictures of this handsome fella but he is just as good looking as he seems from the pictures above! So if any walkers are looking to take a dog out for a little longer I think the energetic Bob would be a great choice, he enjoys his walk, is non reactive to things you come across and loves the attention. What else can a walker ask for hey?
I am absolutely devastated to say that Bob has come back to us His doggy sibling wasnt taking too well with sharing her home so the sad decision was made to return Bob. Bob, we dont think you will be waiting long handsome boy but whilst you are back, the Purple Pilgrims will make sure you get plenty of walks, cuddles and fuss!!
Ohhhh Handsome Bob! After coming back all smelly and muddy having had a ' swim ' with lady Crystal, I noticed poor Bob was the only dog not to have had a first walk, I have walked Bob once before and know he is a strong boy, but I remember thinking he was not beyond my limits, so off we went Yes he does come out like a steam train and you do have to put all your weight behind the lead, but after about 10 mins he settled down to a lovely walking pace. Bob is such a good boy, he shows no reaction to other dog's, even a cheeky offlead Staffie that got a bit too close, Bob did not react at all, well, maybe a waggy tail! We set our pace towards Grangemoor and down to Cardiff bay retail park. Bob was a total gent walking around all the shoppers, did not pull towards them, but did like it when people stopped to give him a fuss
Having drank a whole 1lt bottle of water between us, we had ran out, so we spotted the doggy water bowl outside Pets at Home, while Bob was drinking, one of the staff members came out to say hello to Bob as she realised he was from the home, and put his picture in the adoption book out of the rehomed section and into the front of the book, which is kinda bittersweet but it helps rehomers to see his lovely face So yes, Bob is a powerhouse, he will pull you down the lane and have you thinking about taking up gym membership, but once you get passed that ' leaving kennels ' excitement, you will be left with a very loving dog, who enjoys his walk and will stop to give gentle kisses xxx Please go and say hello to Bob, he will love you for it
