Abandoned Dog Lands Himself A Job At A Petrol Station

A dog who has ditched at a petrol station by his previous owners when it was a desolate construction site has only gone and landed himself a job there.

Negao was found wandering by Sabrina Plannerer and her partner when they got the rights to build a Shell petrol station in the town of Mogi das Cruzes, Brazil.

"We adopted him immediately and got him all the care animals need," she told the Dodo. "We bought him food, a dog house, and a leash to take him on a walk."

But the pleasantries didn't end there. The couple decided to give ol' Negao a job at the garage.

Now, of course, Negao couldn't possibly work behind the till, or clean shop floors. What he could do was greet customers in the nicest possible way.

Sabrina said: "Customers love him. Some people even bring him toys."

Such is the level of Negao's dedication to the graft, that he chooses to sleep at the station instead of going home with his adopters.

Ever the people pleaser, the mutt has even become a poster dog for a local initiative spearheaded by charity group FERA which seeks help for stray dogs.

Sometimes, life can be ruff. Trying to get by in a world of societal imbalance and injustice can affect our everyday activities. I think Negao serves as an opponent and inspiration to this setback. Long may he bark.
