As a UPS delivery driver, Katie Newhauser made friends with people and pets along her route. One day, she went an extra mile for one of those friends.
Newhauser lives in Rancho Cucamonga, California, where she has been a UPS driver for several years. Over the years, she has become friendly with customers and their dogs on her regular delivery route. She developed a particularly close friendship with a woman named Tina and with Tina’s dog Leo.
Newhauser posted a picture of Leo riding shotgun in her UPS truck on the UPS Dogs Facebook page. The page is dedicated to dogs and other critters that UPS drivers have befriended on their delivery routes.
Newhauser told People magazine, “Leo would hear my truck come into the condo complex and start barking and scratching at the door to come down to the truck. He loved coming to the back of the truck to look around.”
One day, Newhauser got the devastating news that Tina had died. She also learned there was nobody in Tina’s family who could adopt Leo.
