Four-year-old Southbank pup Sol is regarded as somewhat of a resident socialite by his owners as well as fellow neighbours.

When Southbank Local News caught up with its March Southbanker Wendy Grenfell last month, the Kavanagh St resident shared her tale about the “dog that fell from the sky” in her apartment building.

That dog was in fact her neighbour Sol, and Southbank Local News was keen to catch up with owners Johann and Kiara Galliani to uncover the hidden legend behind this illustrious title.

“Wendy didn’t realise that Sol lived two apartments up and there’s a little hole that Sol can walk across through the garden bed to get into her apartment,” Johann explained.

“She had no idea where he came from and she said he must have fallen from the sky!”

Not that Wendy minded the intrusion one bit, with Sol highly regarded by everyone in the building including the concierges.

Nor does Wendy’s own dog Annie mind the regular visits who, according to Kiara, has become Sol’s girlfriend.

Johann said Sol was commonly known for being friendly, playful and sitting on people’s feet.

“He normally likes to sit on people’s feet. He’s like a set of moccasins in winter,” he said.
