What do you do when you have your dog with you but you need to pick up a food order? You hand your pup over to pop sensation Harry Styles of course!

When a Twitter user asked people to share their most awkward or interesting celebrity interaction, it was the reply from Roy Carroll that quickly got everyone talking. Rory, a Reuters correspondent, took to Twitter to share his account of meeting the One Direction star.

Popstar turned dog sitter

Incredibly, one evening Rory got Harry Styles to watch his yellow Labrador, Oscar, while he went in to get his takeaway from an LA restaurant.

"I was outside a restaurant in Hollywood trying to pick up my take out order but couldn't go in because I was with my puppy,” Rory posted.

"Harry Styles saw my predicament, tapped me on the shoulder and said he could watch Oscar while I went in. What a guy." 

And of course, everyone loved this story, especially when Rory shared a photo of the One Direction singer with his cute pup.

Great dog sitter

According to Rory, Harry is a great dog sitter and was very protective of little Oscar, and was ready to turn down Harry's offer to watch him.

He told Buzzfeed: “I could see Harry and Oscar through the windows of the restaurant while I waited inside and Harry was great, never looked at his phone and kept his focus on Oscar.”

Harry didn't even mind when Rory asked for a photo.

“When I went back outside I realized no one would believe me if I didn't have a photo so I sheepishly asked for one and he was willing, which was cool. We shook hands, Harry went into the restaurant and that was that,” Rory added.

Harry is already well-known for his acts of kindness but fans couldn't get enough of the story.


One fan posted "IM ON MY KNEES TO PROPOSE TO YOU, HARRY STYLES RIGHT NOW," while another said, "That's Harry Styles for you in a summary. Such a sweetheart."

In fact, Rory's post has had over a thousand comments all agreeing that Harry seems like a really nice guy.

Mr Nice Guy

Harry has already earned a reputation as being a genuinely nice guy and is known to encourage his fans to be kind to each other.

While on holiday in the Caribbean with singer Adele, Harry was reported to have left a huge $2,020 (£1545) tip for the waiter.
