It’s what people do when they think no one is watching that shows their true colours. Last year a Morrisons security guard went viral for sheltering a dog under an umbrella while on duty.

A tattooist from Glasgow, Mel Gracie, witnessed a security guard sheltering a dog from the rain while the owner was inside shopping in the Giffnock supermarket.

She caught the moment on camera and uploaded it to Twitter with the caption: “Shout out to this @Morrisons security man keeping this good boy dry. He said, ‘Well you never know how dogs feel about the rain.’”

As you can imagine the tweet quickly gained reactions with 1000s of people complementing the security guard for carrying out such a simple but heartwarming task to prevent the dog from being soaked.

Over the next 24 hours the tweet had more than 100,000 likes and over 13,000 retweets.

Some of the comments read:

​​“You can tell a lot about someone by how they treat animals,”

“Some heroes wear hi-viz jackets.”

Following the virality of the tweet it eventually reached Ethan Dearman the security guard who carried out this act of kindness who share the tweet saying: “Looks like I made a lot of people happy today”

Gracie shared that she frequently sees Dearman at the store and “He always has a chat with customers in the queue which is lovely – especially right now when some people might be quite isolated,” she said.

“I shared this hoping Morrisons would see a staff member’s nice deed but I have no idea it would go this far!”

The official Morrisons Twitter account shared the post saying it was “adorable”.

Twitter users were expressing their admiration and suggesting that the supermarket will show Dearman additional recognition.

“Can this employee be recognised for going above and beyond?”

“Give this lovely gentleman a bonus!!!”
