Owner Dies, Pit Bull Ends Up With His Favorite UPS Driver


California UPS driver Katie Newhouser befriended a woman on her route when she saw her out walking her dog. "Leo took a liking to me," Newhouser says of the pit bull. "He would even hop in my truck and look around the back."

Then, in October, Newhouser found out Leo's owner, Tina Rummel, had died. Rummel's son, Canon, was in training to be a Marine, so Newhouser offered to take Leo in until his training was complete. "But after Christmas break, I decided that he was getting along so well with my other dogs that he should just stay," Newhouser tells Today, and thus Leo found his new forever home.

Their story started getting attention recently after Newhouser shared a picture of Leo sitting in her truck's driver's seat on the Facebook page UPS DOGS and then later shared their story with the PupJournal website, People reports. Newhouser tells the Dodo she knew Leo for a year before Rummel passed away. "He's one of the most gentle dogs I have ever met."


We need more lovely stories like this one.

My pit? Luci? The kindest more gentle dog EVER.

She saved my life (or from horrible injuries at least) twice.

I still miss her.

peace

That's a nice story. My friends still have their golden that came from a woman who died in Kansas during a tornado. The woman's out of town family did not want the dog so it ended up in an adoption network which my friends then spotted.

Not sure of the exact date but they've had the dog for close to 6 years now.

Duh, I see what I did, I meant tornado. I'll edit that.

Much more believable Sir.


Or, my chat bot algorithm is trying to make me appear more human. You decide.
