Today reported that, according to a Facebook video posted by Michael Collins Sunday, his dog Kyza loves the mail man.

"Everyday whether or not we have mail this mail man always stops to see my dog who is only 9 months old," Collins wrote.

Collins said that his dog usually gets looked over, possibly because of his size and the perception of his dog being dangerous or unapproachable.

In the video, the mailman approaches the dog and gives him pets and rubs. The dog wags his tail enthusiastically and licks the mailman's face.

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!!
