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…
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.
There’s one thing it seems we can all agree on – our canine pals are too good for this world.
Once you’re a dog parent, it’s hard to imagine a life without having a pooch to come home to.
Admit it, all of us pestered our parents for a pet dog at some point during our childhoods… or adulthoods…
And that’s fair enough. But what isn’t fair enough is when people neglect and abuse dogs, or any animal, for that matter.
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.
And for someone to care for them.
A stray in Brazil managed to get himself adopted by a car dealership, and it’s the sweetest story.
Staff at the Hyundai Prime dealership noticed the adorable pooch after he began hanging around frequently.
And that the pup would soon move on to somewhere else.
The little pooch remained persistent and kept coming back to his new friends at the store.
And it wasn’t long before he became a permanent resident.
And staff were happy to oblige.
They hired the pooch. Yes, you read the right…
Despite adopting him in May, the pooch went viral this week after his Instagram account gained attention from dog lovers.
Showroom manager Emerson Mariano told Top Motors Brazil that the feedback for Tucson’s customer service in the store has been extremely positive.
He went on to say the environment in their organization has improved thanks to the dog’s “very caring and docile nature.”
Some even bring him gifts!
“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.”
