A FedEx driver from Colorado has been hailed for helping a family find their pet by personally delivering her to her Castle Pines home.
Dog owner Lisa Menzies said the family’s three-year-old golden retriever, Catcher, was having an outdoor adventure as she and her husband were out of town.
“We were getting some repairs done on the house,” Menzies said. “Our contractor left to go to lunch and shut the front door — and the wind blew the door open while I was gone, and Catcher escaped.”
The dog was wandering outside in the neighborhood where anything could have happened to her. “She could have wandered out to a busy road and you hate to think what’s going to happen then,” she said.
But thank God for the FedEx driver who made a special 61-pound delivery to the family’s home. Menzies got a message from him, and she has no other information about him, other than that he works for FedEx.
The driver said he found a dog and wanted to drop it off at the address printed on her dog tag. The family’s Ring doorbell captured the heartwarming moment when the driver carried the large dog “with such care” up the walkway and into the house.

“Seeing him carry her into the house like that — in my head, I was thinking of the theme song from the ‘Titanic,’” Menzies said. “He was taking such care and love with her that it was really amusing.”
Catcher is now back with her family all because of the kind-hearted driver who found her and delivered her even with his busy schedule. “He interrupted his day and his package delivery schedule to pick her up and hand carry her into our home and lock the door behind him,” Menzies said.
“I don’t want to think about where else she could have ended up. He is certainly our family’s hero.”
Menzies is searching for the driver who she wants to thank in person, and Catcher too would be looking forward to reunite with her new best friend.
