A dog that was apparently abandoned at a Brazilian gas station got a new "leash" on life, AOL reported.

One day, Sabrina Plannerer noticed a frightened pooch roaming around her Shell station in Mogi das Cruzes, near São Paulo.

After conferring with her partner, Plannerer took in the lonely dog and had him vaccinated.

"We adopted him immediately and got him all the care animals need," she told The Dodo.

Negão now has his own dog house, and "works" as an official employee of the station, greeting customers coming by to fill up.

Plannerer captured photos of Negão wearing his official "Mogi Auto Center" name badge and a Shell Oil cap.


She said he has become a great ambassador for her station.

"Negão waits for people to arrive, and then goes up to say hello, winning them over with his charms," Plannerer says. "Customers love him. Some people even bring him toys."
