Video: Decade-long post office ‘dog hold’ leads to federal lawsuit

SEATTLE — To the untrained eye, Ilsa seems a little slow and a little tired. But shedding hair and a toothy grin perhaps hide some darker purpose.

“They keep on bringing it back to dogs. And I just want to get my mail,” said Ballard homeowner Randall Ehrlich.

He is now suing the United States Postal Service for being on a “dog hold” that prevents him from receiving mail, and has been for nearly a decade.

“The regular mail carrier will not deliver to my residence,” Ehrlich said one of the people named in the suit.

Ehrlich was placed on what’s called a “dog hold” because the previous dog, now dead, was deemed threatening by the carrier and USPS. Q 13 Fox Seattle
