Two years ago a gas station in Brazil was just about to be opened when the owners found a dog wandering around that had been abandoned by its former owner and was afraid to leave. Rather than adopt him as a personal pet, they decided to make him the official station mascot.
Now Negão a favorite employee at the station and he even has his own nametag. Employees take him on walks multiple times a day and the 24 hour station always has plenty of friendly visitors to come in and give Negão the loving pets he deserves.
"Negão waits for people to arrive, and then goes up to say hello, winning them over with his charms," the owner says. "Customers love him. Some people even bring him toys." He's even the face of a new movement in Brazil that aims to get businesses to help take in some of the strays out of the area because there are too many dogs and not enough homes.
