She was later requested to send in a video of the pair.

Then she got the call to bring both dogs to shoot the commercial.

“It was totally unexpected,” Danielle said.“But I knew my dogs were well behaved, so thought I’d give it a go. I’m really pleased with the outcome.”

Luaappears in the ad with a woman and little girl. They had to spend a lot of time with the actors and the What’s New crew before filming could commence.

“She was really good and settled in with the actors and the camera crew,” she said. “She is so easy going, so the noises and cameras didn’t bother her.”
