ABILENE, Texas (AP) - Some customers at a Lowe’s store in Texas are getting tag-team assistance from a military veteran and his service dog after both were hired to work at the store.

The Abilene Reporter-News (https://bit.ly/2hdVHCk ) reports that U.S. Air Force veteran Clay Luthy and his golden retriever, Charlotte, both wear red and blue Lowe’s vests to work at the home improvement retailer.

Luthy has had five surgeries on his knees and can’t bend his left leg. Charlotte is trained to help Luthy up if he can’t get off the floor.

Charlotte has become a customer favorite in her two months on the job. Luthy says everyone loves the pooch, adding: “This definitely was not part of the job description.”
