18 Adventurous dogs who love to be in the wild
Need a little inspiration to get out there and grab the proverbial bull by the horns? Look no further than these 18 nature-loving pups who'll go anywhere for a good adventure.
Hike up a mountain and pose for a picture, all before lunchtime? Piece of cake for this pup!
2. Salty dog
There are few things dipping your toes in the ocean can't fix. Just ask this happy-go-lucky pup.
3. Field of dreams
Not only are these smooth-coated Collies up for a romp through a thick-grassed field, but they make it look good.
4. Duck-trolling dog
Will he catch the duck? Meh, probably not. But he's having a good time and that's all that matters.
5. Cliffs? No big deal
Craggy rocks won't stand in the way of this pup discovering what's over the next peak.
6. You can't beat a good creek
This adorable guy knows the importance of blazing through a creek every now and then. As they say, carpe diem!
7. Ice is not an obstacle
Brrr! This sweet baby sure seems to be having fun exploring the frozen waterfall, but we're chilly just looking at the picture.
8. Pride Rock?
No, this isn't a scene straight out of The Lion King — rather, it's Mini and Gizmo enjoying the view after scaling a tall hill.
9. Doggy paddle
Can your pup paddle? This dog doesn't mind a little bit of white water as long as it means a whole lot of adventure.
10. It's never too early to start exploring
Little though this pup may be, it is fierce.
11. View from the top
He has made it to the peak and now Doug the pup intends to enjoy the view of the river below from his perch on a cliff. That's what we call living, my friends.
12. The road less traveled
Poised in thought on a snowy path in the woods, Riley looks pretty enough to be a picture from a Robert Frost poem.
13. To ski or not to ski...
This little pup isn't just gamely trudging through the snow — in fact, she's helping pull her "paw-rent" cross-country skiing. Now that's love.
14. Head for the hills
No hill is too steep, no mountain too high for Remi the Bernese Mountain Dog. This super-playful guy traverses any terrain in the name of a good adventure.
15. Forest dweller
This Lab knows the sheer joy that comes from winding through massive trees and splashing through swampy water. Oh, that we would all know such happiness!
16. Surf's up
If this is what the dog days of summer look like, sign us up.
17. Sharing the moment
Just a boy and his dog enjoying the peace and introspection found at the top of a tall peak.
18. Not all who wander are lost
You know the trees are tall when they make massive breeds like this look miniature!
