Michael Ryder had received a letter that he was approved for $360 every week in Michigan unemployment benefits. Not everyday a dog gets to contribute to his household!
That’s right, Ryder is actually a German Shepherd! His owner Michael Haddock received the letter disclosing the benefits. Apparently Ryder’s been let go from a chain restaurant in Detroit where he supposedly worked.
The good news? Haddock reached out to the agency that sent the letter. They’re saying their system sent the letter, but it was flagged as "suspicious." Investigations administrator Tim Kolar got in on the laugh, writing Haddock to say, “It’s rare for a ‘man’s best friend’ to contribute financially to the household and that will continue in this instance.”
