A golden retriever attends the American Kennel Club Presents The Nation's Most Popular Breeds Of 2015 at AKC Headquarters on Feb. 22, 2016, in New York City.

Huckleberry, a 5-year-old golden retriever, is living up to the adventurous spirit of his namesake.

The Austin dog has become a social media star for his habit of jumping onto his owner's roof every time he goes outside. 

The owners, Allie and Justin Lindenmuth, posted a sign by their front door for curious -- or concerned -- passersby, KVUE reported.

"We never leave him in the backyard without someone being at home," the sign says. "We appreciate your concern but please do not knock on the door. We know he's up there! But please feel free to take pictures of him and share with the world! #hucktheroofdog."

"Huck the roof dog" had more than 7,000 Instagram followers May 12.
