This dog from Brazil named Tucson first made headlines when he got adopted by the manager of Prime Hyundai. Emerson Mariano decided to take the dog for good when he saw the stray dog outside Prime Hyundai’s premises.
According to Emerson, he pitied the stray dog, so he decided to give the dog a space inside the auto shop. A few weeks later, Tucson made headlines once again when he became a Prime Hyundai car consultant.
In a viral photo, Tucson was donning a tie like a full-fledged employee. Emerson shared that the dog spends the day helping in the daily operations of the company. What the dog does is interact with potential customers and existing clients.
Although some critics mentioned that Prime Hyundai uses Tucson as a marketing tool, Emerson does not believe so. This is because the manager believes that the dog is enjoying the new role he is doing. With the dog’s increasing popularity, Emerson’s team put up an Instagram account for the dog.
After a few days, Tucson’s social media following skyrocketed. On Instagram alone, the dog now has over 135,000 followers. This is because people began noticing the cuteness and smartness of Tucson. Apart from this, Prime Hyundai’s customers also lauded its decision to welcome the pup as an employee.
According to Emerson, one of the reasons why they adopted Tucson is to show people that Prime Hyundai is a pet-friendly company. This is because Prime Hyundai does not want to be branded that all their policies are only good on paper.
Emerson likewise announced that Tucson would be a part of Prime Hyundai’s national ad campaign, which will be launched in December. But before the shooting, the company wants to ensure that the dog would not harm other people. As such, Tucson will receive vaccines before the big day.
