Some animals end up with jobs better than ours. Of course, they don’t get a paycheck, but they’re rewarded with a home, food and a lot of love. Negão is the friendliest employee you will ever find at a gas station and he’s there to help you with anything you need if you include some cuddles as a tip!
25. Meet Negão
But Negão’s life wasn’t as bright as it is now. It all started a few years ago when Sabrina Plannerer and her partner purchased a Shell gas station. Soon they would meet the best employee ever!
24. The First Employee
Around the site of construction, there was a dog roaming the place. The gas station wasn’t completely built and when Sabrina saw the dog, she something had to be done!
23. They Helped Him
Instead of making the dog leave the construction site, Sabrina and her partner decided to help him. So, they took him to the vet for vaccinations and de-worming. This dog would soon discover a new happy life!
22. Sabrina Adopted the Dog
Once they took care of the dog, Sabrina adopted him and bought everything: food, a dog house and a leash for his walks. Later, their pet who was now called Negão even got a job!
21. The Gas Station Opened
When the day of the opening arrived, Negão was there to greet the first customers. His new parents didn’t know how Negão would react seeing so many strangers, but the pooch was incredible! See it for yourself in the following photos!
20. First Day Of Work
On his first day, the pooch was a really good boy! He was a little bit scared by all of the people that came to the gas station, but he was ‘at work’ and did his best to make customers happy. You won’t believe what he received from his owners! It’s adorable…
19. A Badge Fit For Great Employees
Negão even got a badge to prove he is an employee and he has every right to roam around the place. As for his relation with the customers, he proved to be a natural. Everyone was in awe! Here’s why everyone loves him…
18. Negão is Amazing!
It was surprising for the dog to accept so many people, considering the place was different from what looked like when he first got there. Back when the station was still under construction, there weren’t many people around. Look at his smile!
17. A Smiling Employee
Plannerer said that every time customers come, Negão waits for them ‘and then goes up to say hello, winning them over with his charms’. What does he get from it all? Cuddles and some weird tips… You won’t believe what people bring him!
16. A Cherished Pooch
‘Customers love him. Some people even bring him toys’, said his mom. And when he’s done with greeting people and cuddling with them, he goes with Sabrina or a co-worker for walks in the town.
The doggo even managed to make a difference for other dogs! Here’s what he did…
15. An Inspiration
Sabrina’s act of kindness wasn’t overlooked. The story of Negão became famous and attracted the charity Group FERA. The group has received Sabrina’s support in finding homes for stray pets. And that’s not all!
14. Jobs For Pets
The charity group FERA aims to place stray dogs in more businesses so that the strays can get a certain kind of care and a safe place to call ‘home’. Our pooch seems pretty happy in the next photo, don’t you think?
13. Respect Animals
What Sabrina did was give the poor dog a chance to a new life. She showed him how to trust people and she has also encouraged other people to respect the animals around them. The pooch is a star on Instagram and the next photo made him famous!
12. Everyone Loves Negão
Imagine going to work and cuddling with your best four-legged colleague. It not only is a way to relieve stress, but you could also spend your breaks doing something healthy, like running with Negão! Sabrine encourages people to do the next amazing thing, and we couldn’t agree more.
11. Hire a Pet
Sabrina believes that Negão’s story could help other stray pets get new homes and maybe some establishments will hire a different kind of staff. Negão has one more message for his fans, here it is…
10. Some Licks to Say You’re Welcome!
