A dog named Negao was living a tough life on the streets when he was found by the owner of a gas station that was still in the middle of being built.
The poor homeless pup was abandoned at the construction site of a future Shell station and he looked frightened.
Two years ago, Sabrina Plannerer purchased the Shell gas station in the town of Mogi das Cruzes, Brazil. She soon discovered her new dog roaming around the site.
“We adopted him immediately and got him all the care animals need,” Sabrina told the Dodo. “We bought him food, a dog house, and a leash to take him on walk.”
She didn’t stop there, giving Negao not only a new home but also a job.
At first, his owners were worried about how he would handle the sudden traffic of people but he took to his job with a loveable fervor only a dog could provide.
“Negão waits for people to arrive, and then goes up to say hello, winning them over with his charms,” Plannerer says.
“Customers love him. Some people even bring him toys.”
The hardworking pup has become a poster dog for a local initiative started by the charity group FERA, which aims to pair stray dogs with businesses when forever homes can’t be found for them.
