Morgan, a dog in Florida, was discovered on a highway without anyone around. A good Samaritan picked up the dog and transported him to a nearby shelter. Currently, Morgan is leading a much different and happy life by being active. Brian and Jennifer Kettledon, his new owners, had Morgan’s DNA examined and discovered that he is an Australian Cattle Dog with a powerful drive to be active.

It all began when Mrs. Kettledon trained her dog, Morgan, to bring their morning newspaper inside their house in Mystic, Connecticut. During one of their walks, Morgan saw Mrs. Kettledon helping an elderly woman get her paper. The next day, without being instructed to do so, Morgan picked up the woman’s paper, ran to her front door, and happily dropped it off.


“He’s happiest when he’s doing a job,” Mrs. Kettledon said. “He loves to train and he loves to learn a new trick.”


The couple has made many friends in the neighborhood because of their dog’s enthusiasm. Specifically, their dog Morgan picks up everyone’s newspaper from their lawn and brings it to their front door.

Bette Collins expressed that Morgan’s act of kindness made her happy and she considered it a great start to the day to have him deliver their newspaper. Another neighbor mentioned that they were not a newspaper subscriber before, but after seeing Morgan deliver the newspapers to everyone’s door, they were planning to become one.
