A rescue goat from Knoxville, Tennessee, has chosen her favourite human: a UPS driver that frequently visits the sanctuary where she lives. This relationship may be unconventional, but it’s definitely filled with affection.


Pearl (the goat) is a resident of the Gentle Barn, a rescue sanctuary that rehabilitates abused animals. According to operators of the sanctuary, Pearl runs to the end of the yard every time she hears the sound of the approaching UPS truck.


Pearl tries to be patient but occasionally jumps in the vehicle for immediate affection. The UPS driver appears fine with the attention as he has been reported to show up with peanut butter treats for Pearl on occasion.

They say we often find love in the oddest of places, and this story may very well be proof of that.
