Meet Clay Luthy, 35. He’s a veteran that had to look for a civilian job after having to have three knee surgeries when he returned home. His ten-year-old service dog, Charlotte, has to be with him at all times because she’s trained to help him up when he falls.
We hear in the news all the time how veterans don’t always get the respect they deserve for serving their country; this time that wasn’t the case.
A Lowe’s in Abilene, Texas has hired both Clay and Charlotte.
Clay was in Lowe’s so often that his wife encouraged him to apply for a job. So that’s exactly what he did.
Judy Dechert Rose, a Lowe’s customer, posted a photo on her Facebook page that showed the two hard at work, sporting their matching vests, with the caption: “I love Abilene Lowes, way to go! This is a disabled vet who struggled to get a job because he needs his service dog! Lowes hired them BOTH!!”
Lowe’s manager, Jay Fellers, explained to KIDY Fox why he hired Clay and Charlotte:
“Because they were the best person for the job. So, we went through the interview process and Clay and his own merit won the job. And we knew he was gonna make a great employee—we just got the benefit of getting Charlotte right along with him.”
We’re happy to hear both Clay and Charlotte are working together and enjoying their new job.
