in association with FIND RECRUITMENT
FIND Recruitment has the great pleasure
of announcing the 2020 K9 Gold Winner
- BUSTER SALANOA
Head of Security, Kilbirnie Bus Depot, Tranzurban
Buster’s human is Michael Salanoa
The Find Judges said
“Buster showed outstanding commitment to his role in keeping the community moving through Covid-19 – a true superhero” (Editor: We think Busta’s PPE may have just swung it for him)
Congratulations Busta. You go into the K9 Gold Hall of Fame.
THE 2020 RUNNERS UP:
1st Runner Up:
TEDDY the Pinehaven School dog
The FIND Judges said
“ Teddy gives awesome support to Mrs McKee and all the kids in her class. Helping build our future generation one lick at a time” Teddy's kids all provided glowing written references proving Teddy is obviously very much loved and good at his job. Teddy is pictured here, centre, with Zoe left and Isla right.
2nd Runner Up:
THE ARTHUR D RILEY DOG SQUAD
Bear Atkins, Buddy Allen, Lola Allen, Porter Cameron, Toto Henry and lastly the grand dame, soon to retire Sooky Pickett (who bikes to work each day in her human's front pack as pictured).
The FIND Judges said
“We really appreciated the effort from the ADR team and the office dog to office human ratio looks spot on.”
The Runners Up will both receive framed 2020 K9 Gold Certificates.
Thank you to all of the humans who put so much time and love into their Entries. The Find Judges got so much pleasure out of reading about your dogs and seeing them in action in workplaces all over Wellington.
K9 Gold will be back in July 2021 - watch this space.
