It’s a 9-5 job for Pattsie the Pekinese-cross pup.

“Pattsie sits at reception while I’m working. She gets so much attention. She’s the most popular staff member,” said owner Steven Broadhurst.

The 14-year-old Pekinese goes to work with Mr Broadhurst everyday and loves the attention she gets from everyone (tummy rubs being her favourite).

Mr Broadhurst picked up Pattsie from the Lost Dogs’ Home about five years ago and they have been inseparable ever since.

“Our last dog was from the Lost Dogs’ Home and my aunty works there. As soon as she saw Pattise she said I had to come down and see her. That was it really,” Mr Broadhurst said.

Working in Southbank, Mr Broadhurst calls it a “friendly suburb where there’s always people smiling.”

Pattsie gets about three hours of exercise everyday and enjoys strolling along the Yarra River.  “I would like to see more parks for animals in the area,” Mr Broadhurst added.

Mr Broadhurst described Pattsie as a “totally urban pup – she’s just so beautiful”.

Her sweet nature means she loves being in the city and being around people and at 14 she’s still as cute and playful as ever.
