Katie Newhouser is a UPS driver who has developed a friendship
with Leo, her client’s pit bull from Rancho Cucamonga,
California. The woman, however, had no idea that one day she
would be looking after this sweet doggie.
“Whenever I’d turn up at the complex, he’d apparently go
crazy, and he’d want to come down and see me,” Newhouser told
The Dodo. “He just took a liking to me for some reason. He’d
always come up and lick me.”
Leo would also jump into her truck. “He would sit there and
sniff around,” Newhouser said. “When I had to leave, he
didn’t want to get out.”
The UPS driver even got to meet the doggie’s human, a woman
named Tina. This continued for a year, until one day, when
Newhouser came back from her holiday and went to their
complex. She couldn’t find Tina around, and that’s when she
learned that the woman had passed away.
“I knew he had nowhere to go, and I didn’t want him to end up
in a shelter, and with somebody who was not going to be good
Now the doggie lives with Newhouser, who is showering him
with love and support through this sensitive time of
grieving. Bless the doggie’s heart.
