One man made a decision to test Petco's "all leashed pets are welcome" policy by bringing his leashed African Watusi steer named Oliver in through the front doors.

Vincent Browning visited the popular pet store with a giant African Watusi - on a leash, of course.

"We mean it when we say ALL leashed pets are welcome in our stores", the store said on Facebook. "The awesome crew at Petco-Atascocita did not disappoint!"

To Shelly Lumpkin and Oliver Browning's surprise, the African Watusi was welcomed "with open arms", Browning wrote on his Facebook page on Monday.

The staff members were reportedly "super friendly and courteous".

Lumpkin told FOX 8 that they always enjoy visiting that particular Petco location and intend to bring Oliver back in the future. Even with its thick and long horns, the steer had no trouble getting through the front doors of the business.

The Texas Petco store employees called Oliver one of their "favorite customers".

The post has since earned more than 400,000 views.
