When Clay Luthy was finished serving his country, he was left requiring a service dog. Many companies would view that as a problem. Lowe’s Home Improvement viewed it as an asset.
“I’m just a disabled vet, and I can’t stand to be sitting at home. Instead of medications, I have Charlotte,” Luthy said.
Luthy served two tours in Qatar and one in Uzbekistan. However, knee injuries and multiple surgeries made it impossible for him to re-enlist. According to CBS News, that’s what Charlotte is for: Since Clay cannot bend one of his knees, the golden retriever helps him off the floor if he falls.
However, he was worried what Lowe’s would say when he came in for an interview with the dog.
“We were interviewing people for his position. And he was one of the applicants. And so he showed up for the interview and he had Charlotte with him,” Jay Fellers, a Lowe’s human resource manager, told KRBC-TV.
When he asked the hiring manager whether his service dog would be out on the floor with him, “He told me and said, ‘Oh … absolutely … we’ve got service dogs that work all throughout Lowe’s.’” In fact, they even provided a work vest for Charlotte.
Luthy got the job two months ago, but it wasn’t until a Facebook user posted about the veteran and his service dog that he — along with Charlotte and Lowe’s — started getting some attention.
“This definitely was not part of the job description,” Luthy said about customers’ response to Charlotte.

As for Charlotte, one can imagine his trusty dog has gotten a few more treats.
