“We decided to take a chance and call Petco's bluff on the 'ALL LEASHED PETS ARE WELCOME' policy,” Vincent wrote. “The awesome crew at Petco - Atascocita did not disappoint!!”

"They welcomed Oliver the African Watusi with open arms," he added. "The staff members here are always super friendly and courteous to us. We really enjoy coming to this location...our favorite Petco BY FAR!!"

According to Shelly, she and Vincent were on their way back from an occasion with their beloved animal when they decided to stop at the Petco store, located about 25 miles north of Houston.

When Shelly asked one of the employees if she wanted to see Oliver, the employee responded that they bring the steer inside.
