UPS Dogs has explained that while drivers meet plenty of dogs throughout their day, some of the dogs aren’t as agreeable as others. Therefore, these social media posts are supposed to reflect the happy dogs that break the stereotype of dogs who hate mailmen.
“When time permits, drivers snap a photo and send it to UPS Dogs,” they explained. “Our followers love the photos and the stories told as we share our love of these special relationships with these lovable creatures.”
