Katie Newhouser is a local UPS driver in Rancho Cucamonga, California, who had a special bond with a pit bull on her route named Leo.
Since drivers typically go on the same routes every day, they often form bonds with the pups they meet. The drivers will often bring treats or toys for their favorite dogs, and the pups reward them with kisses!
“He would hear my truck come into the condo complex and start barking and scratching at the door to come down to the truck,” Newhouser said. “He would love to come into the truck and go into the back to look around.”
The UPS driver even got to meet the doggie’s human, a woman named Tina. This continued for a year, until one day, when Newhouser came back from her holiday and went to their complex. She couldn’t find Tina around, and that’s when she learned that the woman had passed away.
Even though Newhouser already had three dogs, Leo eventually became a permanent part of the family.
