He joined the team when he was just one year old and has been successfully winning customers' hearts for over 3 years now.
Some dogs have a way of melting our hearts. Humans often fall for the purest love and the adorable innocence that these furry companions show. Their cute charm sometimes works pretty well in convincing humans in their favor. Considering these qualities, they may as well be great marketers or salespersons and this was realized by one of Brazil's Hyundai Motors showrooms. On July 31, 2020, Hyundai Motors Brasil shared on Instagram that a showroom in Sierra, Espirito Santo had hired a street dog named Tucson Prime as their sales dog consultant.
Tucson often lingered around the Prime Hyundai showroom and with time he befriended the showroom employees, per Business Today. So, they began feeding him and playing with him regularly. With time, Tucson became an indispensable part of the showroom employees' gang. So, to honor their furry friend, the Prime Hyundai showroom hired him as part of their sales team. Tucson even received his salesman ID card and he was just one year old when he kick-started his career in the showroom. It's been over 3 years and Tucson is still a dedicated employee in the showroom captivating customers with his cuteness.

The post announcing Tucson's onboarding as a salesman went viral with thousands of wishes pouring in. "What a beautiful boy. He deserves all the love and affection. Congratulations to all of you for this wonderful initiative" @mariasalviopereira wrote. "What a beautiful initiative. A great example to follow. We would certainly have fewer abandoned and neglected friends on the streets," @veraliciacampos commented. "If I ever buy a car, I'm getting a Hyundai just because of the puppy. Hyundai Tucson is my favorite model. Too bad we don't have it anymore," @monicaneumitz wrote.
Just like Tucson, another furry employee is winning hearts online and in the workplace. An abandoned kitten, Rico who was severely injured was rescued by veterinarian Meryem Imrani and since then he has been an integral part of the vet's clinic offering emotional support to other sickly animals. "I took him in and took care of him hoping to find him a family but I knew that what led him to me, would make him stay. I didn't even try to find him another home. I thank the heavens day and night for allowing me to save him. What joy and sweetness he adds to our daily routine at the office," wrote Imrani in a Facebook post.

Rico, the resident pet caught the internet's attention when he started developing a paternal bond with a little orange kitten named Caramel who was brought into the clinic after being severely injured. Rico was ardently pacifying and soothing Caramel while the little kitten was getting treated. Not just the vet's treatment but also Rico's emotional support was vital in nursing Caramel back to health. The beautiful bond between Rico and Caramel appeared as though the resident's pet was reminded of his past when he was injured as a kitten. Rico's affection and concern for Caramel is proof that being loved is one of the best medicines.
