Daredevil dog BASE jumps off 2,000-foot cliff with owner

Just call him “Air Bud.”

A daredevil dog demonstrated nerves of steel by seemingly fearlessly BASE-jumping off a more than 2,000-foot-tall cliff with his owner, as seen in this hair-raising clip.

The heart-stopping video shows the brave border collie, named Kazuza, preparing for the jump with caretaker Bruno Valente, 38, who outfits the 6-year-old pup with his own safety harness. “I am more scared than him,” Valente intones as they sidle up to the ledge of a 2,300-foot-high cliff in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland.

Valente then scoops up Kazuza and jumps off the edge with his intrepid companion in tow before deploying the parachute as the pair plummets down to the ground thousands of feet below. After landing safely in the grass, the courageous collie can be seen giving his owner a high-five with its paw.

“BASE” is an acronym that stands for the objects from which one can jump: building, antenna, span and earth (cliff), and is deemed one of the world’s most dangerous activities due to the low altitudes, reports HowStuffWorks.com.
