A stray dog in Brazil became an instant celebrity after a car company recruited him.
A Hyundai showroom in Brazil made headlines across the world after hiring an adorable stray dog they now call Tucson Prime. They not only welcomed him as a new member of their team but also gave him his ID card.
According to the Facebook post, the employees of Hyundai always see the dog roaming outside of the building. The dog never failed to visit the place to seek temporary shelter until one day, they finally decided to adopt and hire the dog as their car consultant. A lot of people, including celebrities, shared the post, encouraging people to be friendly to stray dogs.
The showroom manager, Emerson Mariano, said that he felt terrible for the abandoned dog. Whenever he saw Tucson, he would come out and bring the dog in to give him some food and water. After spending so much time with the dog, Mariano noticed that the dog had potential.
After a while, he suggested adopting him as a mascot and pet. Mariano further explained that their company is pet-friendly, so they embrace it by getting a pet. After the successful adoption, they brought the dog to the veterinarian to receive essential vaccines.
Mariano admitted that they initially planned to only give him a place to stay, but his ability to greet and engage with clients won him a promotion. According to Mariano, Tucson knows how to handle clients well and that the mood in the showroom undoubtedly improved ever since he came. It’s all thanks to the dog’s loving and gentle nature.
Mariano went on to say that many people returned to their store even after purchasing a car simply to meet the puppy and offer him gifts.
The dog now has his own Instagram account, with over 30,000 followers. It all began when the little puppy sought shelter outside the showroom during a downpour, and now he is a popular car consultant.
