One pooch’s predilection for dangerous sports might make dog insurance an important purchase for his owner.
The fearless canine – called the General – regularly takes to the skies in a paraglider with his 35-year-old owner.
He logged his first flight aged one and since then he has been up in the air more than 40 times, reports the Daily Mail.
According to owner Jimmy Rimski, the terrier’s favourite pastimes while strapped into his harness are barking at seagulls and howling along while his co-pilot plays the harmonica.
“Some people give me funny looks but I think most people like the idea … he loves flying and if he didn’t he would soon let me know,” he added.
Those considering going on perilous adventures with their canine companions might want to take out dog insurance to help meet the cost of any medical treatment their animal may need if injured.
Another remarkable Jack Russell to hit the headlines recently was Tiny, whose keen sense of smell prompted carers at the Blue Cross animal sanctuary to sign him up for training as a diabetes detection dog, the Daily Mail reported.
