Stray who visited car dealership every day until he got adopted now works there

A dogged attitude finally paid off for a stray dog who refused to stop turning up to a car dealership – after he was adopted and somehow landed his dream job.

The lonely pooch kept going to a Hyundai Prime branch in Brazil, and after staff fell in love with him they decided to adopt him and put him to work.

Given the catchy new name Tucson Prime the pooch was put in charge of meeting and greeting customers at the dealership, and immediately settled into his new life of luxury.

According to Bored Panda, one night when it was particularly rainy, manager Emerson Mariano invited the pooch inside and let him have some food and water.

But he kept coming back after that, so staff at the dealership finally decided to bite the bullet and adopt him back in the summer of 2020.

Tucson Prime's 'very caring and docile nature' gave managers an idea and it wasn't long before he was a fully-fledged employee.

Emerson Mariano told media outlet Top Motors Brazil at the time: "After all, the company has always been pet friendly, so now, we decided to embrace this idea in practice too, having our own pet precisely at a more complicated time like this with so many abandoned animals."

"But where I came from, I didn't have this technology.

"Me and my humans are still trying to find a way to deal with so much love and affection like that. If I didn't open your message or answered, I wanted to apologise, but we are trying our best to open all messages to try to thank you all, I am very happy with all this!"
