A hardware store just hired an Air Force vet, Clay Luthy, AND his dog because people can be amazing
Heartwarming story alert! Lowe’s Hardware store just hired an Air Force vet, Clay Luthy, and his dog and it’s giving us all kids of warm feelings.
In a time where getting a job is tough enough, Lowe’s has made it possible for Luthy and his adorable dog, Charlotte, to get a job at their store. Clearly there are still good people in the world.
Lowe’s in Abilene, Texas answered his prayers by hiring him part-time, and allowing Charlotte to be in the store as well.
"We were interviewing people for his position and he was one of the applicants," Lowe's human resource manager, Jay Fellers told CNN affiliate, KRBC. "And so he showed up for the interview and he had Charlotte with him."
The publication revealed that Luthy has been with his dog for 10 years and they’ve successfully been a part of the Lowe’s family for two months.
While some veterans use medication or lean on their family when they return from service, Luthy has Charlotte. So working with her is the best thing for him.
"Instead of medications, I have Charlotte," Luthy told the publication.
Whenever Luthy needs help calming down, he looks to Charlotte for support.
Since he began at the hardware store, the veteran has been getting a lot of positive feedback. Shoppers have even taken pictures of him and Charlotte and posted them on social media to show support.
The duo can typically hang in the paint department, since there is a space for Charlotte to sit.
She even has her own Lowe’s vest, which is just adorable.
Well done, Lowe’s. We salute you and your amazing new tag team, Clay and Charlotte!
