This adorable dog has caught the attention of so many people including the owner of a Shell gas station. The friendly doggy captured the heart of the businessman that she made him one of her employees.
Meet Negão the friendly dog!
Negão might not be your typical gas station attendant but he certainly has something that others don’t have – he is the sweetest employee ever.
Despite his rough beginnings, Negão has always been very friendly toward people who come by the gas station.
“Negão waits for people to arrive, and then goes up to say hello, winning them over with his charms,” Sabrina says to The Dodo. “Customers love him. Some people even bring him toys.”
And he always has a smile on his face!
Two years ago, Sabrina Plannerer along with her partner bought a Shell gas station under construction in Mogi das Cruzes, Brazil. When they visited the site, they discovered a stray dog roaming in the area. According to the locals, the poor pup was abandoned by his previous owner and was too scared to leave the place.
Instead of calling the town dog shelter to pick up the frightened doggy, Sabrina decided to help.
“We adopted him immediately and got him all the care animals need,” Plannerer reveals to The Dodo. “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.”
During the opening of the gas station, Negão new owners gave him a job – he became a gas station attendant.
Alhough Negão had a bad start in life; he has proven to his new human owners that he can provide world-class customer service.
We are pretty sure he gets the employee of the month title since the first day.
The other employees at the station also take turns in walking Negão through town to make sure the “model employee” gets the right amount of exercise each day.
“It’s been sensational, encouraging people to have more respect for animals and workers enjoy having the companionship of a four-legged colleague.”
Sabrina hopes that Negão’s story will influence other businessmen to hire an animal staffer.
It is always a nice way to start your day to be greeted by an adorable smile from a canine.
