A security guard from a megastore in the UK became an overnight hero. All after a heartwarming photo of him sheltering a customer’s dog from the heavy rain, went viral on social media.
Ethan Dearman, who works as a security guard at a Morrisons store in Giffnock, Scotland, has recently became an internet sensation after taking care of a dog in the sweetest way. The dog – a Golden Retriever – was tied up in front of the store by its owner who went shopping. But since meantime a heavy rain started, the kind security guard decided to help the furry little fella out.
The adorable scene was caught on camera by a local who posted it on Twitter. The lovely snap immediately went viral with thousands of people reaction to this guy’s incredibly selfless gesture. “Shout out to this @Morrisons security man keeping this good boy dry,” Mel Gracie wrote on Twitter. “He said ‘well you never know how dogs feel about the rain’.”

A lot of people have praised Ethan’s gesture. “Some heroes wear hi-viz jackets,” one person wrote. While another added: “Just beautiful.. this man deserves a pay rise.” Even Morrisons official account wrote “Adorable!”
Even the hero couldn’t believed his eyes when he found out he’s a star on the internet. “I didn’t think I’d go viral on twitter like this,” he wrote on Mel’s tweet. “I knew I was making people smile but this is something else entirely, lol.”
Hi Kirsten! This is actually my partner @Jack_Dudgeon’s dog, Jem. He was shocked to realise this has gone viral & recognised him right away! 🤣
More than happy for Jem to get a bit of attention, though – he is a indeed, a very good boy. 🐕💛 @AsdaServiceTeam @Daily_Record pic.twitter.com/jOXYS00fP6

The man also explained the reason behind the now viral snap. “It wasn’t raining when he was tied there and since I can’t move another’s dog I thought using an umbrella would be a good compromise,” the man wrote.
