Here’s your restoring faith in humanity moment for today. Owen, who has a brain injury, had been having a hard time finding work because he has a service dog. So, according to this wonderful Facebook post, Lowe’s Canada hired them both to work in a new branch of the store.
A spokesperson tells us that Owen is working in customer service, greeting shoppers — and Blue the dog’s new title is customer service canine. Lowe’s even gave Blue his very own tiny orange vest, which the store’s manager custom made especially for the pup.
We expect Blue to be “employee” of the month soon.
This Lowe’s is in Regina, Saskatchewan, and seems definitely worth a trip — to see this pair in action and thank this business for honoring the bond between Blue and his person.
