Neighbors were worried when they saw the dog living on top of the owners’ house.


Huckleberry, a golden retriever, causes some panic, so the owners were forced to post a sign on their front door. They explained to the neighbors that their dog likes to hang out on their roof.

Allie Lindenmuth, the dog's owner, told CBS News: "He likes to sit up there and watch the cars and passersby. He loves to bark and say hello!"

About four and a half years ago, Allie and her husband, Justin, moved into their house in Austin, Texas


The couple noticed the 3-foot clearance between a hill in their backyard and the roof. It took six months for Huckleberry to figured it out.

Allie said that their playful pooch makes his way to the roof every time she and her husband let him outside.

The couple began receiving calls from their neighbors about his whereabouts.


Allie cracked a joke, saying: "It is pretty obvious when he is up there... it is very loud."

However, some of their neighbors were concerned when they started seeing Huckleberry on the roof.

Instead of explaining their dog's crazy antics, the couple posted a sign to let them know they were aware he's on the roof.

The sign reads:

"Huckleberry is living up to his name and learned how to jump onto our roof from the backyard. We never leave him in the backyard without someone being at home. 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!"


Huckleberry became a viral sensation when someone posted his photo on Reddit, according to American Web Media.

Many Reddit users gave the photo an upvote. They also shared comments about his unusual habits.

He's also gained more than 38,000 followers on Instagram, where he's known as "hucktheroofdog."
