For as long as anyone can remember, the furry trio had been living as strays in the city of São Leopoldo. It's unclear how their sad lives on the streets began, or if they knew each other before winding up there, but one thing is certain - they grew to be inseparable.
Gabriel Corrêa first learned of the pups last month after purchasing a gas station in town where they would occasionally turn up. For the previous owner, they were clearly considered a nuisance.
"When we took over in February, we were told that there were some dogs who went there from time to time looking for the night guard who gave them food," Corrêa told The Dodo. "We were told we shouldn't feed them or give them attention, because if we gave them food or attention they would stay there forever."
Corrêa heeded that warning - and did quite the opposite.
