Ethan Dearman, a security guard at a supermarket in Giffnock, Scotland, was showered with praise after the picture posted online went viral…
Dearman was located in front of the Morrisons supermarket when the sky opened, showering everyone and everything outside.
Dearman luckily had an umbrella to protect himself from the downpour, but when he noticed a puppy hit by the rain, he concluded that the puppy needed it more than he did.
Dearman shielded the puppy gratefully with an umbrella and kept him dry while they waited for the puppy’s family to return from shopping.
The kind act was noticed by another shopper, Twitter user MelGracie_, who took a picture of the sweet scene and praised Dearman on Twitter.
In a tweet, she revealed that Dearman explained his sweet gesture with the real words “‘so you never know how dogs feel in the rain’.”
The tweet soon went viral, and before he realized it, refreshing selflessness and concern for other made him a true hero online!
Looks like I made a lot of people happy today. https://t.co/cuUfnU3o2a— Ethan Dearman (@DearmanEthan) June 28, 2020
Dearman was touched by the response he received. He retweeted the tweet that went viral and added this sweet caption: “Looks like I made a lot of people happy today.”
Later, he was pleased to announce that the pup in question was named Freddie and that he and his family had made a return visit to the store and stopped by to say hi.
The dear gesture and gratitude he received from both the puppy’s family and from the general public shows how important and appreciated kind actions can be…
Dearman’s matter-of-fact display of concern and compassion, and the attention he received have certainly inspired other people to follow in his footsteps and he can be very proud that he has contributed to making the world a little brighter and kinder.
On Twitter, happy and appreciative comments have been pouring in and spreading the love.
