Winston made an Amazon driver run for his life, and the sweet English mastiff just wanted to play with the panting man
On September 10, an Amazon driver arrived at the family house of Allan and Meredith Anderson in Temecula. Well, the poor man couldn’t even imagine that a 180-pound English mastiff would welcome him.
The driver didn’t see the beware of the dog notice on the gate and proceeded to the front door. in the next second, we can see him rushing back to the gate and vaulting the perimeter fence of the house. Who is chasing him? It’s Winston, the English mastiff.
The three-year-old dog turned away from the fence and the driver stopped for a second to catch a breath. The smile on his face is priceless.
What happened next? The driver realized that the dog just wanted to play and he walked back to the fence.
Meredith, 51, an animal health saleswoman walked over and collected the parcel.
Allan, 56, is a real estate agent. He said, “We were just completely shocked, especially that he didn’t say anything to us. We couldn’t believe what happened and how high he could jump. Once we realized nobody was hurt, we did laugh to ourselves.
It looked like the delivery driver got a kick out of it actually. Meredith was taking some trash out from the front door and Winston just ran out. You can’t see the gate from our door so she didn’t know what happened.”
Why was the delivery guy panting and smiling on the opposite side of the driveway? Meredith was shocked.
“She was wondering why the delivery driver was on the opposite side of the driveway, panting and smiling to himself,” Allan said.
“She just said to him: ‘he’s just a big, friendly puppy dog, sorry if he startled you.’ It wasn’t until Meredith mentioned how weird the situation was that we decided to watch the security footage back. When you open the front door, he just wants to run out and see what’s going on.
He’s just so friendly. Even at 180lbs, Winston is still a lap dog. He’s just a big softie but he is very athletic for an English mastiff. He is an absolute sweetheart. If the delivery driver had bent down to say hello afterward, Winston would probably still be there licking his face. I am really glad nobody got hurt.”
Winston melted our hearts, and the video of him running after the Amazon driver went viral.
Maybe the man will get a chance to win an NCAA steeplechase championship. The comments section was filled with jokes. Some said that the driver probably had a heart attack. Look at that jump! Impeccable!
