Their unlikely friendship and hiking trips around the beautiful mountainous landscapes of Colorado have gained the pair a cult social media following.
Hundreds of thousands of people follow their adventures on the photo-sharing platform Instagram.
For owners Cynthia Bennett and Andre Sibilsky, their popularity is surreal.
“Andre knew then we were taking him home. I feel like he chose us in a way.”

A mix of high energy dogs, he took to hiking and long walks straight away.
A year later, Cynthia realised that she was posting too many pictures of Henry on her social media accounts, and decided it would be a fun idea to give him one of his own.
“It’s also giving Henry and Baloo a better life, I get more time off to travel and be with them.”
It is not all positive, however. Popularity has brought on some backlash against the couple’s alternative outdoor-based lifestyle, according to Cynthia.
“As soon as you get well known, you get the other side – which has been different to deal with.
“I’m like, why are you attacking a dog and a cat? I just don’t get it.”
