Realtors showing up to make a listing presentation to Candy Spelling — widow of famed television producer Aaron Spelling — first had to pass muster with her dog.

Agents hoping to land the job of marketing Spelling’s $150 million Los Angeles mansion were first introduced to Madison, her Wheaten Terrier. If the dog didn’t like the agent, "Spelling crossed them off the list," the Associated Press reports.

Realtors showing up to make a listing presentation to Candy Spelling — widow of famed television producer Aaron Spelling — first had to pass muster with her dog.

Each agent hoping to land the job of marketing Spelling’s $150 million Los Angeles mansion was first introduced to her Wheaten Terrier, Madison. If the dog didn’t like the agent, "Spelling crossed them off the list," the Associated Press reports.

"Real estate agents, forget your listing presentations, no more presenting a comparative market analysis, no more innovative marketing ideas," blogs Rhona Sutter of The Pet Realty Network. "Simply carry Milkbone treats in your pockets and … rub freshly barbecued chicken all over you from head to toe. You may not be welcomed at Barney’s in Beverly Hills, but prospective doggy clients will choose you immediately."

Coldwell Banker Previews International of Los Angeles is co-listing the property, AP said.
