He is the first dog to climb this high up on Mount Everest. The brave canine accompanied his master to a height of 5364 meters.
The dog’s master decided to take his pet with him in order to encourage people to adopt recue animals. He found the now famous dog as a starving, skin and bone 11 month old puppy in India. The former professional golfer adopted him as he wanted to raise awareness that every single life matters. He called the dog Rupee.
‘I am very proud of Rupee; he behaved fantastically during the climb’, the owner said. He also added that it was astonishing how well the animal handled the hardships on the mountain, as they endured cold, dangers and avalanches together.
