A picture that has won thousands of fans across the world shows a security guard sheltering a waiting dog from the rain while getting wet himself. The heartwarming moment was captured outside a Morrisons supermarket outlet in Glasgow, Scotland, reports the Evening Standard.
The picture, clicked and shared on social media by Twitter user Mel Gracie, shows the security guard holding a black umbrella over the dog on Sunday morning as the pooch patiently waited for his owner to finish shopping. According to news website People, the guard was later identified as Ethan Dearman and has won hearts with his act of kindness.
