An incredible story of a stray dog who was given a second chance by a car dealership has gone viral this week.

The pictures are adorable...

Dogs are truly man's best friend.

Whether they’re causing mischief, giving us those puppy eyes when they want a treat, or taking up the whole sofa, many of us couldn’t live without our furry friends.

In fact, it's basically what unites the internet.

There’s one thing it seems we can all agree on – our canine pals are too good for this world.

They are part of the family.

Once you’re a dog parent, it’s hard to imagine a life without having a pooch to come home to.

And they remain one of our nation's favorite pets.

Admit it, all of us pestered our parents for a pet dog at some point during our childhoods… or adulthoods…

But, it's no secret that dogs aren't for everyone...

And that’s fair enough. But what isn’t fair enough is when people neglect and abuse dogs, or any animal, for that matter.

Too many people still hurt and abandon innocent and defenseless animals...

Shockingly, about seventy million stray animals are living in the U.S. alone - proving that alarming numbers of people think it's acceptable to dump or abandon their pets.

But of course, there is hope.

Many of these animals are rescued so they can be adopted and find their forever homes.

All a dog needs is a second chance...

And for someone to care for them.

The latest adorable pooch to take the internet by storm got the second chance he deserved.

A stray in Brazil managed to get himself adopted by a car dealership, and it's the sweetest story.

Meet Tucson Prime.

Staff at the Hyundai Prime dealership noticed the adorable pooch after he began hanging around frequently.

At first, staff thought it was just a temporary thing.

And that the pup would soon move on to somewhere else.

Tucson proved them wrong, however.

The little pooch remained persistent and kept coming back to his new friends at the store.

It seems he made quite an impression...

And it wasn't long before he became a permanent resident.

He was determined to stay.

And staff were happy to oblige.

But they went a step further...

They hired the pooch. Yes, you read the right...

He even has his own ID card...

Despite adopting him in May, the pooch went viral this week after his Instagram account gained attention from dog lovers.

The pooch loves to greet and interact with customers.

Showroom manager Emerson Mariano told Top Motors Brazil that the feedback for Tucson’s customer service in the store has been extremely positive.

He continued:

He went on to say the environment in their organization has improved thanks to the dog’s “very caring and docile nature."

Many customers return to the store after purchasing a car just to greet Tucson again.

Some even bring him gifts!

The staff are all in love with the little pooch.

“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."
