Twitter users praised the guard for his good deed. The post bearing the photo of the guard and the dog has since acquired almost 150,000 likes, as of this writing. Some also requested the supermarket to reward the man for his kindness for going “above and beyond” his duty.

Dearman, later on, retweeted the post and responded: “Looks like I made a lot of people happy today.”

Dearman, meanwhile, acknowledged his workmates at the supermarket today, July 1.

I just wanna give the Morrisons giffnock team a shout out. If it wasn't for the teamwork between staff on a daily basis then I wouldn't have been able to shelter Freddie from the rain and watch customer queues while staff members at the door continued to count the numbers inside.
