A jumping bulldog has become a social media sensation for celebrating a brave leap into his owner's arms.
Little Reginald has yet again stolen the hearts of dog lovers on Reddit thanks not only to his soaring dive but also his reaction to it.
Proud owner Duc Vo from Canberra, Australia has built Reggie a huge 68,000 strong following on Instagram where his pooch can be seen pulling off heroic stunts inside a gym.
A Reddit user described Reggie's giddy preparation to the jump off a 6ft tall stack of boxes, as "charging".
Another laughed: "Just gotta squat down to charge it up my dude."
Once he "works up the courage" for the leap, Reggie hilariously clears the camera frame with all the form of an Olympic diver, into Duc's open arms.
Someone commented: "Yeah, once he worked up the courage to finally jump he really committed to it."
An impressed viewer praised: "Such a graceful chonk!"
