Some dogs are just too excited to be hightailing it out of the shelter.
Like Leroy, a dog, who just couldn't contain himself on his flight from a kill shelter in North Carolina to a rescue in New Jersey.
Unlike the other dogs who were flown from North Carolina this month, Leroy wasn't content to hide in his crate during his flight to freedom.
He just kept popping his head out again and again.
"Leroy was just a furry ball of fun from the start," Paul Steklenski, the pilot and founder of Flying Fur Animal Rescue, tells The Dodo. "Hilarity ensued when we attempted to move him from his ground transport crate to his flight accommodations."
Indeed, Leroy just kept poking his head out, Steklenski notes, "like a jack-in-the-box."
It seemed the tiny terrier mix, who was initially picked up as a stray on the streets of Wilson, North Carolina, wanted to soak up every second of his odyssey to a new life.
"We convinced him it was unsafe and he finally relented to full crate status," Steklenski adds.
And then this pop-up pooch, along with nine other rescuees, took to the skies.
