A UPS driver made an extra special delivery this holiday season when he located a neighbor’s lost dog and brought the animal home to safety.
Darrell Slack said he was in the midst of his Christmas package deliveries on Cyber Monday when Paula Odom, a resident of Turtletown, Tennessee, alerted him of her missing Jack Russell Terrier.
"She told me, ‘Our dog's gone’ and that he had escaped the front porch," Slack, a 29-year UPS worker told FOX Business. "I just told her, ‘We’ll find him.’"
Slack said Odom had explained to him that her 7-year-old dog, Pete, was a runner and she was nervous he’d be lost in the 500-plus acres of the Cherokee National Forest which surrounds Odom’s area.

"In that forest there are coyotes, there are bears…my fear was that Pete is not mountain-wise and wouldn’t know what to do in a situation like that and the chance we'd see him again was slim to none," Odom told FOX Business.
