The DODO reports that two years ago a scared and skinny stray dog started appearing near a gas station in Tamaulipas, Mexico, staff there did more than just take notice.

Though the pup was skittish at first, showing signs of mistreatment, they worked to gain his trust.

“We fed him, bathed him and got him vaccinated,” Gerardo Aguilar, the station’s owner, told The Dodo. “We adopted him. Now he lives here, and is cared for by all the workers.”

The staff named their new canine colleague Randy — but little could anyone have guessed the heroic way that sweet pup would repay them for their kindness.

Randy had saved the day.

“We were surprised to see how he reacted, and of course we are proud of him,” Aguilar said. “If it weren’t for Randy, who knows how things would have ended. He shows us how grateful and happy he is with us.”

And when Randy’s not busy being a hero, he makes other people happy, as well.

Nuria Arellano, a frequent customer at Randy’s gas station, told the The Dodo she picks that location to fill up primarily because of the cute dog who resides there.

She hopes more places are inspired to hire stray dogs like Randy.
