She’s already a film star, a model and a behaviour specialist.

Now Holloway’s favourite celebrity dog has won one of the UK’s top animal awards.

Flora, a two-and-a-half-year-old Akita, has been awarded a commendation from the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals for her her work with young people.

The peerless pooch goes into classrooms across London with her owner Robert Stuhldreer to provide a calming influence on children with behavioural problems.

On top of her work in the community, Flora just finished filming new movie Trespass Against Us with Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson, was named Britain’s Next Dog Model 2013 and is the current Canine World Dog of the Year and winner of SuperDogs Live.
