Special Package Discovered by Post Office Employee

April Livingston | May 17th, 2018

It was just a typical Monday morning for Patricia Polites, who typically opens the post office in Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania. However, that particular morning was anything but normal for her. A little over an hour after the post office opened, a customer rushed inside to say there was a tiny Chihuahua huddled in the corner of the lobby. Patricia rushed out to find a little black Chihuahua all alone, with no food, toys, or even tags. The little dog was terrified, but he let Patricia pick him up and then placed his little head on her shoulder and started to cry.

Patricia placed the little dog inside a laundry basket with food and water and then began to try to find the dog’s owner. The Chihuahua was frail and had beady eyes that she says makes him look like a little fruit bat. She also contacted the rescue group called Hound Hunters of NEPA, who helps lost dogs and their owners reconnect. The little pup garnered quite a bit off attention in the meantime, with people calling and stopping in to see if they could take him home. But soon Christine Cahill of the Hound Hunters group arrived and they gave him a temporary home while they searched for his owners. They also gave him a name: Batman.

Batman also took a trip to the vet, where it was discovered he has alopecia on his ears and luxating patella, a common condition in small dogs that makes it difficult for them to walk. Though over 600 people applied to adopt Batman, he was adopted by Christine Cahill’s daughter after his owners failed to claim him. Despite his health issues, Batman is now settled in with his new family and has not been happier to have a lap to snuggle in each day.
