Dog lovers from around the world are loving a Facebook page set-up by UPS delivery drivers to celebrate the amazing pooches they meet on their daily rounds.

When Sean McCarren began working as a UPS driver, he quickly realised that dogs had gotten a bad rap. Because rather than chasing away the mail and delivery people, the vast majority of pooches were more interested in making friends with these unexpected visitors.

So he decided to honour these big-hearted dogs with their very own Facebook page. Set up in 2013, UPS Dogs quickly gained a loyal following and now has over 1.4million likes.
The UPS Dogs Instagram page is also making its mark with over 500k followers!
As well as loads of adorable pictures, the Facebook page provides fans with regular updates on their favourite UPS dogs.
These include Dakota, who has a habit of following her favourite driver's truck down the street.
Megan the mix-breed is another fan favourite. She sits in the same place every day and waits for another delivery. And she can hardly contain her excitement when she sees Scott's van turn the corner - although that might have something to do with the cookie he always brings her!
Dogs aren't the only furry critters UPS drivers meet on their daily adventures. They've also shared pictures of cats, foxes, a baby alpaca, and even a curious goat who insisted on coming along for the ride.

But why do dogs love their UPS drivers so much? Well, to start with, dogs thrive off structure and routine. They're also inherently social creatures who are always on the lookout to make new friends, especially ones that bring potential 'goodies' with them.
Or maybe they just love bringing a little bit of joy into people's lives. After all, no matter what kind of day you're having, dogs will always make it better.
