The Japan Times notes that
At Oracle Japan, an Old English Sheepdog named Candy works as a "greeting and healing ambassador," according to the company website.
The company said it has had an office dog since 1991, and Candy, the fourth one, now has Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Meanwhile, Pasona Group "hired" two goats in 2011 and two alpacas in 2013 as full-time employees, partly for healing purposes.
