Remember Remi’s mantra `Anybody can cook’ from the movie Ratatouille? Well, something similar has happened in Brazil. No, Remi isn’t cooking here. The slogan should change into ‘Anybody can become a salesman’ or rather `Anybody can become anything’ maybe? Read on.

A Hyundai car showroom in Brazil is in news for all the good reasons. They have a special pawfessional consultant named Tuscan Prime. Nope, there’s no spell mistake. It indeed is a pawfessional consultant.

The story behind Tuscan

A young stray dog took refuge outside the car showroom one rainy day. Mariano, the manager felt sorry for the dog and brought him in. He also gave him some food and water. The dog then stayed on.

Mariano told The Gazette that he became attached to the dog. He suggested the board to adopt the dog as a mascot. He also named him Tuscan. After his adoption, Tucson has got all the necessary vaccinations. And soon, he’s will star in Hyundai’s advertisement campaign.

He is a Star already !

The feedback for Tucson’s customer-interaction in the store is awesome. Also, the environment in the outlet has improved. Thanks to the dog’s very caring and docile nature. Mariano told the media outlet that many customers returned to the store even after purchasing a car just to meet the dog and give him gifts.

The handsome fella now has a dedicated Instagram account, with nearly 30,000 followers. Although Tuscan was adopted in late May, the story made waves earlier this week. This after the official handle of Hyundai Brazil posted images of the ‘pawfessional consultant’ on their Instagram account.

Fans all over the Net

The post was shared on the occasion of Dia do Vira-Lata. Its a day reserved to create awareness about the importance of rescuing and adopting stray animals. The company’s handle posted that the dog was adopted by an outlet in Serra in the state of Espírito Santo.

Initially the dog was merely provided refuge. But his ability to greet and interact with customers earned him the ‘promotion’. “The new member is about a year old, was welcomed by the #Hyundai family and has already won over co-workers and customers with his sympathy – and if he also just won yours, double-tap the photo!” said the post on Instagram

Tuscan also has his own ID card. He spends the day roaming around the store and meeting and greeting people.
