A United Parcel Service driver made an unscheduled pickup in the San Joaquin Valley -- a puppy that was dumped out of a car.

The Modesto Bee reports the rescue happened Tuesday evening in Stanislaus County.

According to police in the small city of Hughson, the UPS driver saw a car stop on East Hatch Road, a door open and the puppy being dropped in the middle of the street.

The UPS driver quickly stopped and picked up the pup before it could dart into traffic and brought it to a Hughson police substation. The delivery driver was not able to get the license of the car.
