The US Postal Service is expanding a program to keep carriers safe after more than 5,300 carriers were attacked by dogs last year.
The PAWS Program, first implemented in Pennsylvania, is expanding across the US, using paw print stickers on mailboxes. Minnesota, South Dakota and Tennessee have starting using the program.
An orange sticker tells carriers there's a dog at home. A yellow sticker tells them that there is a dog next door.
Removing these stickers could mean that you lose mail service to your home.
You do have the option to opt out of the PAWS program. Just visit your local post office.
