Mailman Takes Photos With All The Dogs He Meets At Work

They say that mail carriers and dogs are supposed to be mortal enemies. But anyone who owns a dog knows that is usually just a myth. Our dogs usually enjoy greeting the mail carriers who come to our door. They might be a little apprehensive at first, but after they get to know the people carrying our mail day in and day out, they develop a fondness for them.

And there is one mailman down in Sao Paulo, Brazil who has found that being a mailman definitely comes with its furry perks. As an animal lover, Cristiano da Silva Antunes gets more than his fair share of canine cuddles while on the job. The friendly man goes around not only delivering mail to people but also making friends with all the animals who are along his route. Sounds great! 

Cristiano’s job has also led him to develop a new hobby as well. He has set up an Instagram page called Cateiro Amigo Dos Animais, or Animal-friendly Mailman, where he documents all the animals he meets through selfies with them. Most of the animals he’s made friends with are dogs, but occasionally he’ll befriend cats or even birds! And his passion project has definitely gained notoriety seeing as he’s already received about 92k fans!

Check out some of the selfies below:
