Hyundai hires street dog as salesperson in Brazil


Walking into a Hyundai car showroom and being welcomed by their best employee of the year – a dog. That is what the role that Tucson Prime, a street dog was adopted by a Hyundai showroom, fulfills with composure. The touching story of Tucson Prime has won many of the hearts after going viral on social media platforms in recent times. The dog’s salvage and subsequent promotion to the salesman did not take place in India.

Tucson is a street dog, seen hanging out near a car showroom in Brazil. The adorable dog soon made friends with the staff of the showroom, who inducted Tucson into their Hyundai family and made Tucson an honorary employee – complete with his Identity card.

According to the World of Buzz, Tucson has just been promoted to a car salesman after being adopted by Hyundai in May 2020. Now, Tucson can be seen guarding the Hyundai showroom in Description Serra, Brazil.

Tucson’s beautiful story gained viral attention after it was shared on Instagram by Hyundai Brazil four days ago. The automotive manufacturer wrote while introducing their newest employee on Instagram, that the new member is about one year old, was welcomed by the Hyundai, and has by now won over co-workers and customers.

Photos of Tucson looking every bit the famous employee have captured more hearts on Instagram, collecting more than thirty thousand likes’.

The former street dog Tucson has become impressive of a social media celebrity. His own Instagram account has over twenty-eight thousand followers. Photos shared on the Instagram account show Tucson working hard to make a living – attending meetings, greeting important Hyundai executives, and demanding belly rubs.

The cheering story has also made it to other social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram, where people can’t seem to stop conversations over Tucson.

Actor Swastika Mukherjee was also the one among those who shared the story on social media.

This is not the first example of a street animal finding a permanent home in Brazil. In 2019, when a stray kitten moved into the Order of Attorneys of Brazil, seeking to protect from a storm, he instantly won over many of the employees. The kitten was soon hired by Order of Attorneys of Brazil and given his very own Identity card.
