Did You Know that UPS Drivers Have a Facebook Group to Share Pics of the Dogs They Spot?

Every animal lover can admit that they get a little excited when they spot a dog out in public.

I mean, there’s a whole Facebook group called Dogspotting, which is specifically dedicated to documenting said encounters.

Well it turns out that our UPS drivers have created a Facebook group of their own to show their appreciation for the pups they see on their route. Prepare yourself—it’s pretty fantastic.

And contrary to the belief that all dogs hate mail carriers, it turns out that plenty of dogs love their delivery people. Of course, many will bring treats for the dogs they encounter or packages that contain a pup’s favorite food, toys or treats.

The group is actually run by UPS drivers and was started in 2013. Their Facebook page explains,  “UPS drivers deliver packages all day long. During each day, drivers encounter many dogs, most friendly and some not so nice. When time permits, drivers snap a photo and send it in to UPS Dogs.”

Here is just a taste of some of the posts from the UPS Dogs Facebook group.

This group shows that literally everyone is excited about package deliveries, from dogs and their owners to the UPS delivery drivers themselves.

You can submit your dog’s UPS encounters to their group for the potential to be featured on their feed. Head to their Facebook page to get their email and share your pup’s love for UPS drivers.

And don’t fret if you don’t have a Facebook account; you can follow their Instagram account for your fix of UPS dog-spotting pics.
