Some claim – and we have good cause to believe them – that postmen and the dogs on their route are everything but friendly. But these two closest pals will undoubtedly disagree. A mailman in New Zealand – obviously a dog lover – and a German Shepherd with a bad reputation in the area were captured on tape having a beautiful moment!
German Shepherds are recognized for being among the gentlest dogs, but for those who don’t know him, this nine-month-old puppy is quite misunderstood. That prompted Michael Collins, the dog’s owner, to install a covert camera to monitor his dog’s behavior around strangers. But he had the biggest surprise in store.
As soon as the postman approaches, the dog appears to be more friendly than ever. And he’s not simply sitting there with his tail wagging; he’s meeting his secret pal for a stroking session. You can imagine the owner’s astonishment after witnessing the adorable relationship. And, guess what, it didn’t happen by coincidence; it was a daily occurrence for these two.
“Whether we receive mail or not, this mailman constantly stops to meet my puppy, who is around 9 months old,” the owner remarked on Facebook. “He’s always seen as a scary or unapproachable dog, perhaps because he’s large, I’m not sure.” He doesn’t bark or growl at them (except for the rare couple of times he does, but what dog doesn’t?). But this man here constantly gets off his bike and gives him a hug and a pat!”
