THE ‘LUCKY DOG’ ROLE (OTE: $65,000 – $70,000)
In August of 1923, the Brazier family of Silverton, Oregon took a road trip to visit relatives in Wolcott, Indiana.
While there … their dog, Bobbie was attacked by three dogs and vanished!
The desperate Brazier family searched high and low … but were unable to find their dog, anywhere!
Devastated and defeated … they returned home to Oregon.
6 months later, and in terrible shape … that “lucky dog” Bobbie hobbled up to the door of the Brazier family home!
In the 6 months he’d been missing … Bobbie had covered more than 4,000 kilometers (23 kilometers per day) … which encompassed swimming across rivers, crossing deserts and climbing mountains – in the dead of winter!
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Not much, really.
That said … if you’re a sales professional who loves animals and would like to combine the two … check this out!
