May 15 (UPI) -- A Texas dog is the toast of Twitter after a neighbor snapped a picture of him perched on his owner's home -- and a note explaining that he isn't in danger.

Huckleberry, an Austin dog now known to the Internet as "HuckTheRoofDog," came to Twitter's attention when Sarafina Nance spotted him sitting on the roof of his owner's home and snapped some pictures.


"I just saw the bravest most glorious pupper of all time perched majestically on a roof!!!" she tweeted.

Nance's tweet also included a photo of a sign the home's human residents posted to ease the fears of witnesses who might think the dog is in danger.

"Don't be alarmed!" the note reads. "Huckleberry is living up to his name and learned how to jump on our roof from the back yard. We never leave him in the back yard without someone being at home. He will not jump unless you entice him with some food or a ball!"

"We appreciate your concern but please do not knock on our door... we know he's up there! But please feel free to take pictures of him and share with the world!" the owners wrote.


Huck's viral fame led his owners to get him an Instagram account, @HuckTheRoofDog.
