Amazon Delivery Driver Sprints And Leaps Over Fence After Seeing Huge Dog
CCTV footage outside the home of Allan and Meredith Anderson's house in Temecula in California showed the driver not paying much notice to the 'beware of the dog' sign on the gate as he strolls up the garden path carrying the packaging.
But it's not long before he can be sprinting and vaulting right over the gate with Winston - an English mastiff who weighs around 13-stone - running up behind him and towards the fence before he pulls back and starts to wag his tail.
As the three-year-old dog turns away from the fence the driver can be seen smiling as he pulls himself together following his brief display of athleticism.
The driver seems to realise that Winston just wants to be pals as he walks back towards the fence and hands the parcel to Meredith.
Allan, 56, said: "We were just completely shocked, especially that he didn't say anything to us.
"We couldn't believe what happened and how high he could jump.
"Once we realised nobody was hurt, we did laugh to ourselves. It looked like the delivery driver got a kick out of it actually.

"Meredith was taking some trash out from the front door and Winston just ran out. You can't see the gate from our door so she didn't know what happened.
"She was wondering why the delivery driver was on the opposite side of the driveway, panting and smiling to himself. She just said to him 'he's just a big, friendly puppy dog, sorry if he startled you'.
"It wasn't until Meredith mentioned how weird the situation was that we decided to watch the security footage back.
"When you open the front door, he just wants to run out and see what's going on. He's just so friendly.
"Even at 180lbs, Winston is still a lap dog. He's just a big softie but he is very athletic for an English mastiff. They normally just lie around but he will run and jump around too.
"He is an absolute sweetheart. If the delivery driver had bent down to say hello afterwards, Winston would probably still be there licking his face.
"I am really glad nobody got hurt. We've had the gate up ever since we moved in and have the 'beware of the dog sign' too, so we have taken precautions."
