Chase Reinford is a self-confessed adrenaline junkie. He travels all over the country in his RV, a converted school bus, to go look for adventures along with his friends.
When he was on his way to Lake Powell in Utah, he came across a creature that would soon be his best buddy.
Barren desert road
Chase was driving on a barren desert road, an hour away from his destination, when the lead car in front of him suddenly swerved to avoid something. He had to slam on his brakes when he saw that a dog was sitting in the middle of the road. He barely missed hitting him.
The dog ran to the driver’s side of the RV and he opened his door to pick him up. He didn’t want to leave him there as he might get hit by a car. The dog didn’t have any collar. There was no house in sight so he was probably homeless or abandoned.
He decided to bring him along and try to find a vet or shelter in the next town and leave him there. But during their trip, the dog won him over. He started calling him Paco.
Chase brought him along to the lake where they did lots of adventures. They went hiking, swimming, camping, and even rented a boat. The dog loved every minute and kept up with them, which made him even more closer to his rescuer.
But their biggest adventure was yet to come.
One of the more extreme adventures that Chase loved doing was to jump off a cliff. He would parachute more than 400 feet. At first, he didn’t bring Paco with him, but the dog had separation anxiety. He freaks out every time Chase left him alone.
The next time he went cliff jumping, he brought Paco with him, but just to watch. It seemed that the dog wasn’t afraid of heights. He would calmly walk on the edge of the cliff. So he thought maybe he could jump along with him.
And when they did, the dog did not show an ounce of fear. Paco was calm and kept still all the way down. From then on, he knew that they were meant to be together.
Chase and his best bud have gone on lots of adventures together, which they document and post on Paco’s Instagram page. He now has many followers, eager to see what lies next for the world’s most adventurous dog.
