Meet Eros! The 8-year-old chocolate lab who’s helping residents in Medellin, Colombia practice social distancing by making doggy-deliveries.

Eros make runs several times each day, toting a straw basket filled with fruits, vegetables and packaged food – grabbing the basket handle with his mouth.

The AP reports El Porvenir mini-market owner Maria Natividad Botero says Eros makes deliveries on his own – having learned the names and locations of customers with the help of some tasty treats.

She also admits Eros was begrudgingly accepted into the family at first – at the pleading of her son – but they all quickly fell in love the then puppy.
