Postal Worker Stops to Give 'Scary' German Shepherd Some Love

Posted by Mateja Lane

A man in New Zealand catches the mailman stopping every day to give his German Shepherd some love. 

With all the negative news out there, it is nice to catch people in an act of complete kindness.

Michael Collins posted this video to his Facebook page and it quickly went viral for the best reasons.

Michael sees this postal worker daily. And this nice guy remembers every day to say hi to his big, "scary" friend.

"Just want to share something cool! Everyday whether or not we have mail this mail man always stops to see my dog who is only 9 months old. He always gets over looked as a dangerous or unapproachable dog, Maybe cause he's big i am not sure. He doesn't bark at them or growl ( Maybe the odd couple times he barks at people but which dog doesn't ) But this guy here always makes an effort to get off his bike to give him a hug and a pat! I'm not sure who to tag on Facebook for him to see this! But thanks man keep up the good job and you've definitely got a friend waiting for ya!!"

Breed discrimination is a big issue that we are facing here in the United States. German Shepherds have had their own share of breed discrimination and Collins even admits his dog is seen as "unapproachable."

But once the mailman starts to pet this big puppy, you can see that all he wants is more love.

This video proves that you can't judge a dog by the way they look.
