Detroit letter carrier gets surprise delivery - a pup

A Motor City letter carrier got an unexpected delivery Thursday when he found a shivering, emaciated 6-week-old puppy abandoned in a downtown mail box.

The Michigan Humane Society said the postal worker extracted the whimpering black and tan terrier-mix puppy and brought it to the shelter, where it was treated for shock.The group said the dog had probably been left inside the box on Joy Road in Detroit for several hours. Workers at the Humane Society's Detroit shelter have named her Joy.
