It all started earlier this year, when a stray dog started to hang around a car dealership in Brazil. The staff initially thought the poor pooch might be hungry, so they gave him some food and they thought he would eventually leave. But the pup had other plans, though. He just kept visiting the place. Every morning he was there in front of the doors, greeting all the employees who eventually fell in love with the friendly dog.

But all was about to chance pretty soon. It was a pouring rain and when the showroom manager spotted the poor puppy sitting out there in the rain he felt so pity for him, so he decided to offer him a roof over his head. He invited the dog inside the showroom to stay overnight and he gave him some food. And he never leaved ever since.

The friendly pup quickly became attached by everyone there, including the manager, who thought it would be so nice for them to have a mascot. Besides, the dog would have a permanent home. Said and done! They adopted the dog and named him Tucson Prime.

Uma segunda-feira nada fácil, tive minha primeira aula de comportamento com meu professor @leonamvalli (já estou obedecendo muito), gravei minha primeira reportagem para a TV com @tvvitoriaes , fiz uma visita de inspeção nos @postosshellprime para conferir de perto a estrutura que meus humanos fizeram para PETs nas lojas de conveniências de todos os postos do grupo (porque agora todas as empresas do Grupo Prime são Pet Friendly), tirar as fotos para meu primeiro parceiro de doações a @alinutrioficial (que irá me ajudar a distribuir muitos alimentos para meus AUmigos de rua e abrigos), fora os atendimentos na loja que modéstia parte, meus clientes de hoje saíram muito satisfeitos! Ja já posto aqui as fotos deste dia para vocês! Obrigado por me ajudarem a mudar a história destes cãozinhos que são como eu fui um dia, tenho os melhores humanos e vamos fazer de tudo para ajudar o maior número de PETs possível 🙏🏻 Aquele lambeijo 👅 mais que especial 🐾🦴🐶🐕 #tucson #prime #hyundai @primehyundai @postosshellprime @alinutrioficial @tvvitoriaes @leonamvalli @emersonribeiromariano @juliapaixao__ @heyhumanosfotografia

“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,” manager Emerson Mariano told media outlet Top Motors Brazil.

Surprisingly, Tucson made such a big impact with customers absolutely adoring him. So naturally, a promotion had to come! And it did as the lovely dog has now its own badge at the car dealership and a forever home. Top it off he also plays a crucial role in the team. But that’s not all, as he quickly became an Instagram rising star with over 135,000 followers so far!
