Cassie and KaiserDebt Collection
And to complete the family there’s Cassie and Kaiser, a lovable pair of hairy individuals who welcome all and sundry with a friendly nuzzle with rather wet black noses. Not many companies employ large German Shepherds to collect their debts and fortunately they’re normally not required to do anything more threatening than loll around, wag their tails and look relaxed and content. At the end of the day they are the soppiest office rugs and will never make thugs!
