Stray dog adopted as Brazilian car company mascot
Stray dogs have been known to hang around butchers or bakers or other places where food may be forthcoming.
But this little pup instead tried his luck hanging around a car dealership in his native Brazil.
At the Hyundai Prime dealership in Serra, Espirito Santo, the dog would regularly be spotted by staff, who’d give him love and food here and there.
Emerson Mariano was working one particularly rainy day in May and – noticing the dog was in distress – decided to take him in.
He gave him a bath and food and a place to sleep, as well as a name; Tuscon Prime.

Tuscon would come into the shop sometimes with Emerson, but people loved him so much that he’s now got a job of his own as the store’s mascot.
He has a kennel in the dealership personalised with his name, as well as a staff lanyard like any good salesman would.
Apparently it hasn’t just been a positive for Tuscon, as customers have been coming back to the store to see him again and again – no doubt a boon for the sales.
Emerson told Top Motors Brazil about how Tuscon became a member of the Hyundai Prime family, and how he’s now also due to be starring in a nationwide advertising campaign for the brand.
Tuscon has his very own Instagram where he leisurely models in front of cars and sends off sales to their new owners.
And throughout the journey – and despite a few miles on his clock – he’s found a loving new owner of his own.
