Floyd Hayes, 47 registered, beer, yes you heard it right, as his emotional support dog of choice

New York [USA], Jan 24 (ANI): A socially anxious man from Brooklyn recently registered a rather unusual dog breed as his emotional support animal.

Floyd Hayes, 47, registered a beer, yes you heard it right, a beer as his emotional support dog of choice with the USA Service Dog Registration, reported New York Post citing Ale Street News.

New York Post quoted Brooklyn Papers which revealed that the man wanted the certification so that he could enjoy his favourite beverage on public transport.

Hayes, originally from England and a creative director by profession, told the outlet: "I travel from upstate to Brooklyn a lot, and on the bus, they say it's a federal crime to smoke or have an alcoholic beverage unless by prior written contest, and I always wondered where you get that consent."

Though, he clarified that he is not an alcoholic.

The man was just curious and wanted to know if his application could by chance get approved, so he pulled off this light-hearted move.

"It was really just . . . an experiment. I'm not trying to make light on anybody who has any emotional issues," he told the media.

While on the service dog registration website, Hayes checked the "no training needed" option and entered the reason for his requirement as "social anxiety disorder".

Sadly, an employee from the USA Service Dog Registration told New York Post that his faithful companion won't be able to accompany him to a lot of places, even if the application gets through.

"He can register his beer all day long, it's not going to get him anywhere," said the employee.

She further added that medical approval is necessary to take along your emotional support dog on public transport, which would be quite hard for Hayes to get. (ANI)
