Tails are wagging across the UK as Spud is crowned ADT’s first-ever Pet Detective, after a nationwide recruitment drive.
After research revealed that pet pilfering is costing the nation a whopping £305 million, ADT decided to put a stop to the swiping and create a new position on the product innovation team – the Pet Detective.
With the help from Instagram superdog and reformed robber, Pumba the Chow Chow, (@ThingsOnPumba) the hunt was on. The candidate needed to have experience looting possessions and evading capture – after all, it takes a pilferer to know a pilferer!
It seems the UK is full of pinching pets, as the role received over 150 applications, with filching felines, light-hooved horses and bird burglars all vying for the prize.
Top dog was Spud, the boxer from Thornton Cleveleys near Blackpool. With a track record of stealing everything from socks to ties, Spud is ready to put his bandit days behind him and help ADT catch other pet-ty criminals. Ever the master of disguise, Spud has even been caught red-pawed wearing an unconvincing wig and blazer, attempting to sneak off with his ill-gotten gains.
Spud will receive an ADT Smart Home System, a year’s free monitoring, a £500 voucher from Monster Pet Supplies and lots of belly rubs. In return, he will be providing ADT with quarterly reports analysing the stealing tactics of pets and strategies to combat the UK’s animal larceny epidemic.
