A fluffy Samoyed has gone viral for taking to the air in a viral paragliding video with his owner.
Filmmaker Shams posted videos and photos from his adventure with his three-year-old adopted pup Ouka as they flew over the Col du Granon in France in a custom-made paragliding harness.
Ouka, a Samoyed, is seen happily flying underneath Shams in the harness as they take to the skies.
“We did it. After only two months with me, I built a trust big enough between Ouka and me to bring him in the air with me,” Shams said on Instagram.
“One year ago I would never thought my life would have been in the darkest mood I ever been, and neither that I would have a dog and fly with him!!!
“Ouka has been the biggest positive thing that happened to me since many months… I am trying my best to give Ouka his best life, and he is helping me a lot to make me smile again.”
A post of the two paragliding together now has over 18,000 likes on Ouka the dog’s own Instagram page, called Ouka the adventurous Samoyed - and the pup sure is. There are photos of Ouka paddleboarding and even mountain hiking.
Shams explained on Ouka’s Instagram that they did plenty of practice runs to make sure that the doggo was okay to fly and wasn’t showing any fear.
