Hyundai’s cutest pride and joy is reliable and travels about on all fours. It’s not a car, but a dog.
The wholesome piece of news comes in from Brazil. Sometime in May, workers at a Hyundai Prime dealership in Serra started noticing that a stray had been lingering around the location. They first assumed he was a drifter who would just pop by now and then, but later realized he was committed to staying.
The team then named the dog Tucson Prime, adopted and recruited him, as well as assigned him his own Hyundai Prime ID card. He even has a personal Instagram account now.
The pet-friendly dealership had originally planned to just offer Tucson shelter, but were won over by his customer service and thus hired him, according to Bored Panda. The outlet’s showroom manager, Emerson Mariano, also said the team’s camaraderie was getting better because of Tucson’s “caring and docile nature.”
Tucson became the dealership’s most popular employee after Hyundai Brazil introduced the “pawfessional consultant” on its Instagram account.
Tucson, who has since had his necessary vaccinations, still has a bright future ahead of him career-wise—he’s clinched a deal to star in a national campaign by Hyundai Brazil.
