This adorable pooch is enjoying the high life!

Chihuahua Jonathan Warren has travelled to eight countries including France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Canada, Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg – posing for a series of Instagram-worthy snaps.

But Jonathan hasn't always lived such a lavish lifestyle.

The six-year-old mutt lived in a rescue centre in Georgia, US, on the brink of being euthanised.

Thankfully Amanda Klecker (31) and her husband, Jeremy Simon (37), adopted him.

“I first saw him at a dog shelter in Connecticut and I instantly fell in love,” Amanda recalled.

"I could see all his ribs and the bones in his spine, and his long thin legs looked even longer by comparison to his tiny body!” she added.

"I travel a lot with work and now only fly with airlines that allow dogs in the cabin as Jonathan loves the window seat,” Amanda explained.

"He loves being on planes, trains and in cars. He likes to cuddle up in his bag or on our laps, and just hang out with us.

“He has never had an accident or shown the need to go to the bathroom while he’s on the flight, I think he just knows the drill and likes to kick back and relax while we’re in the air.

“We love bringing him to Europe because everywhere is so dog-friendly, he gets to experience everything with us from dining out or sunbathing on a rooftop pool.

“We want to show him the world, not just because he was once destined to only see the inside of a cage, but because we know sharing his adventures can help eliminate the negative stigma surrounding shelter animals and help shed a positive light on adoptable pets.”

The couple say they don’t go on holiday unless Jonathan can join them.

“We both love taking Jonathan on holiday with us and he loves it too, when he sees our suitcases, he sulks until he sees his and then he gets excited.

“He prances around, and this makes us more excited for the trip. We could never leave him behind knowing how much he enjoys his holidays, it’s so important to us to take him with us,” she said.

The lucky canine boasts more than 17 000 followers on Instagram, with people loving the adorable snaps.

“He instantly adapted to the high life on the Upper East Side in Manhattan – he was meant to be here!” Amanda said.
