Instead of chasing the dog away after it was abandoned at a Brazilian gas station, one of the owners adopted him. Additionally, she hired Nego and gave him a badge as an employee rather than letting him sit about the house all day.
In Mogi das Cruzes, Sabrina Plannerer and her partner acquired a Shell petrol station almost two years ago. One day when it was being renovated, she observed a dog by himself prowling the construction area. Sabrina decided to house him because he resisted leaving. After all, he was afraid.
She told The Dodo, “We adopted him right away and gave him all the care he needs. “We brought him to the vet so that he could get vaccinated and dewormed. We purchased food for him, a dog house, and a leash so we could walk him.
Sabrina wasn’t sure how Nego would manage the heavy stream of customers when the gas station opened for operation, but he proved to be a genuine people person. He doesn’t do well at the cash register, but he makes a living as the store’s official greeter.
Nego waits for people to come before greeting them and winning them over with his charm, according to Sabrina. “His clients adore him. It gets to the point where people are giving him gifts.
Since the business is open round-the-clock, he can always count on someone to keep him company and go for walks with him. He now has a forever place at the gas station and is the face of Grupo FERA, a local organization that advocates for businesses to adopt dogs when more permanent housing cannot be found for them.
According to Grupo FERA, “It’s been phenomenal, inspiring people to have better compassion for animals.” Additionally, having a canine coworker around is enjoyable.
Sabrina agrees, and she hopes that her floof will encourage other companies to follow suit. Who knows, they might even attract a few more dog-loving clients!
