ADULT ONLY HOUSEHOLD
OWNERS HOME MOST OF THE ITME
Wanted; PA to a Very Important Daxie – Sir Enzo of BARKshire
Duties to include… pampering, entertaining, walkies, preparation of meals to his exacting standards, taking calls from his medical adviser and general worshipping.
Enzo is a handsome 3 year old dachshund boy who loves to be active, walking and playing with his toys within the grounds of his manor, he’s looking for someone who understands his quirks and is willing to manage him throughout the day.
Enzo is probably the male K9 version of Beyonce, Stunning to look at, but a bit of a Diva. Just make sure you have plenty of alkaline water which is adequately chilled sitting in your fridge!
Enzo has Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus this means his kidneys are unable to absorb fluids, he’s embarrassed to say he wee’s rather a lot and sometimes doesn’t manage to get out of the house in time. However, he’s a very helpful chap and will often try to bury it using his nose in imaginary soil! UNLIKE normal Diabetes, Enzo DOES NOT need medication to manage his condition, just free access to water at all times and to maintain a healthy body condition. It’s important to remember he drinks a lot because he wee’s a lot and NOT wee’s a lot because he drinks a lot, so restricting his water intake is not an option.
Generally Enzo gets on with humans and will actively seek out his current PA’s company to curl up on her lap, but this very much has to be on Enzo’s terms and he can get very grumpy if he’s forced to do something he doesn’t care to do. He doesn’t like to be disturbed when he’s in his bed (open crate with cover over for night time sleeping) and will complain bitterly if you try to take him out of it. Bigging him up, telling what a good boy he is and/or wiggling a long toy in front of his crate sometimes entices him to get up.
Enzo would like an adult only home no children due to his quirks.
Enzo gets on well with most dogs while taking he’s daily constitutional, but can be choosy who he allows into his inner circle while relaxing at his manor and they will need to be personally approved. He also expects to have the undivided attention of his Personal Assistant and for this reason Enzo would prefer to be an only dog.
Enzo isn’t keen on the neighbour’s cat’s, but doesn’t require the help of security to see them off the premises as he’s happy to do this personally.
Enzo is fond of sleeping in your chair during the day, sometimes he even lets you share. He will tell you he always shares a bed at night with his current PA, (of course this is a blatant lie), but will go to his crate (often muttering under his breath in protest) and bury himself in his blankets when told “Enzo, in your bed”.
Enzo tends to resource guard his food and water, he will get very grumpy if not left alone when at his bowls and will show you his displeasure if you try to pick him up. As explained earlier, Enzo often can’t hold on for a wee, he is embarrassed and doesn’t take too kindly to being told off, so it’s best to say, oh dear and clear it up when he’s not looking.
Enzo’s favourite hobby is finding the squeak, he’s spent many an evening, whiling away the hours, torturing some poor soft toy until it gives up its squeaker, which is thankfully followed by a very quick mercy killing! He’s not deterred by the “Tuff E Nuff” toys either, as he’s a dab hand at performing a Frontal Lobotomy and will swiftly locate the squeaker without killing the patient… we’ve had a duck living here quite happily after this procedure for days!
Enzo likes his PA to be close by in case there’s any important decision to be made about a prospective torturing that evening and so doesn’t like to left on his own for too long, be warned he may consult his Company Lawyers about disciplinary action if left for what he considers an unreasonable time!
Enzo loves nothing better than a long walk in the woods, he doesn’t wander too far from his existing PA and always returns when asked politely. He travels well in carriages although he takes offence to riding in the cheap seats and will make his displeasure known. He is well behaved with his medical advisors and is always a hit with the nurses, such a flirt!
Enzo would like to find a palatial home, with large drinking fountains, a Michelin Star Chef to prepare his meals and a servant to pander to his every whim, however a home with a garden, a large bowl of water, good food and a human who adores him is absolutely fine.
Enzo is a delightful boy who will endear you when you first meet, but he’s also a typical stubborn Mini Sausage and will need someone who is experienced with the breed and can understand & manage his moods with kindness.
If you would like to be consider for the position of PA to Sir Enzo, please submit your C.V. in writing below.
