This docile African Watusi steer named Oliver receives a very warm welcome at a Texas Petco store.

With a halter around his head and a rope as a leash, Oliver the African Watusi steer was led through Petco's glass doors and nearly immediately greeted by an employee, Browning's video shows.

A man in - where else - Texas, took it upon himself to test the pet store chain's pledge by bringing his hulking African Watusi steer, Oliver, to a store near Houston.

Petco really means it when it says "all leashed pets are welcome" at its stores.

African Watusi is a breed of cattle known for their strikingly large horns.

"The awesome crew at Petco did not disappoint", Browning posted on Facebook.

Two Texans made a decision to test Petco's policy on pets in the store. "We got a special visit from one of our favorite customers, Oliver the African Watusi!"

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

According to USA Today, the couple was on its way back from an event with Oliver when they stopped at the Petco outlet. If the animal is on a leash, and its owner considers it a pet, it is welcome at the Atascocita Petco, where Browning and Lumpkin saw the sign.
