The canine often loiters around the showroom and shares a good rapport with the human employees. The pooch has also been given an identity card and is the protagonist of a popular Instagram page. The account boasts of several cute photos of the dog and has a handsome following of nearly 30,000.

From guarding the entrance to interacting with customers, Tucson Prime has a lot of responsibilities. But he also makes sure that he helps his coworkers relax in between hectic work hours.

However, this is not the first time that an animal has been adopted by a firm. Last year, a stray kitten was adopted by lawyers of a firm and made an employee there. Like Tucson, Dr Leon, the cat, had also received his official identity card.
