An estate agency in Wales has recruited a head of PR with a difference - Moginie James' latest edition to its senior management team is a black Labrador named Ted.
The former guide dog has been appointed as the five-branch Cardiff firm's 'head of pet relations'.
The lab was re-homed by the firm's director, Nick James, and his wife, Sheila, after withdrawing from guide dog training earlier this year.
He now appears on the Moginie James website and pet-owning clients of the agency will receive a well-wishing card from Ted on completion day.
“Ted is based at our head office in Cardiff Gate and comes in to work every day. I take him out morning and evening, so he gets lots of exercise, and the staff love him," James told Wales Online.
“He has a bed in the office, another in the car and two at home. He also has his pet passport, so he can come with us on holiday to France.”
The firm's canine agent even has his very own email address – firstname.lastname@example.org – although we can't guarantee you'll receive a coherent response...
