The retail home improvement store just welcomed two new people to the team – and one happens to have four legs.

A service dog named Blue, along with his owner, Owen, will be joining the team. Lowe’s introduced the pair to the world on social media.

At time of publication, the post has received 45,000 reactions on Facebook and more than 18,000 shares. On Twitter, it also went viral, with approximately 1,200 retweets.

According to the company, the pair will be greeting people at a new store in North Regina, Saskatchewan.

While Blue is friendly, the dog will be working. Customers must ask Owen first if it is okay to approach her and pet her.

“My understanding is that the dog can be pet if invited by Owen because he’s really there for Owen but if Owen invites them to pet the dog then it’s OK,” spokeswoman Sandy Indig told The Huffington Post.

Kudos to Lowe’s for taking its tagline, “never stop improving” to the next level.
