• Negão, a dog abandoned by its former owner, is an attendant at a gasoline station in Brazil
• The owner of the gas station adopted the dog whose name means black in Brazilian
• The gas station’s owner said customers love Negão
If you happen to be in Brazil and decides to have your car refueled at a Shell gasoline station in Mogi das Cruzes, don’t get surprised if you are greeted by a canine staffer. Yes, the dog named Negão (black in Brazilian) is a full-time employee of the gasoline station.
“Negão waits for people to arrive, and then goes up to say hello, winning them over with his charms. Customers love him. Some people even bring him toys,” Sabrina Plannerer, the gasoline station’s owner, said.
Plannerer told The Dodo that she found Negão two years ago when she and her partner bought the gasoline station that was then under construction. The dog, abandoned by its owner, was too frightened to leave the area so she decided right away to adopt him.
“We adopted him immediately and got him all the care animals need. We took him to the vet to get vaccinated and de-wormed. We bought him food, a dog house, and a leash to take him on walks,” Plannerer narrated.
When the gasoline station finally opened, Negão was “hired” as a full-time customer greeter. And he has an ID to prove it! So cute, right?
Dr Chris Brown, a well-known veterinarian and TV host, shared three photos of the lovable Shell staff!
