ELLA is a rescue dog originally from South Africa. She moved with her family to Dunedin early 2019.
She successfully interviewed for a position at Student Support a few months after her arrival, and hasn’t looked back since.
She loves her job and meeting different people every day. Ella loves being able to provide love for those missing their own dogs, or just being there for students who perhaps need quiet time, cuddles and emotional support. She likes being able to help facilitate people talking to the Support Advocates.
Ella loves walks, talking to different people and dogs on the beach, and she definitely has a nose for all good food!
Ella lives with two doggie friends and her favourite cat, Fred.
In September 2021 Ella was selected as a finalist in the “top dog with a job” category of the New Zealand Top Dog competition. Click here for more >
