Talented Jack Russell leaps from 12 foot high cliffs in synchronized dives with her owner

Launching herself off a clifftop into the clear blue water below this is the pet dog who loves nothing better than performing synchronized dives with her owner.

Jack Russell terrier Titti was taught to dive by her owner Carmelo Abela, 49, who lives in Malta.

The pair often take to St Peter’s Pool on the island and leap off the 12 foot high cliffs together to swim in the water below.

And since footage of the duo emerged online, people have started flocking to Marsaxlokk, a fishing village in south east Malta to catch a glimpse of Titti.

However, Mr Abela, who works for Transport Malta, insists that his pet will only jump if he goes with her.

Mr Abelo taught Titti to dive when she was just four-months-old and at first learned to jump from small cliffs

He explained: ‘She has her own Facebook page and people message me and ask when are we going to the beach because they want to come and take a picture.

‘She trusts me and whatever I do, she does it. When I tell her to jump, she jumps.

Her owner also adds that she can barely contain her excitement when they arrive at the beach because she knows she will be able to dive.

Mr Abela added: ‘When we arrive she is anxious, she won’t wait until I take my clothes off and she wants to dive.

‘She’s amazing – she is crazy about jumping.

‘They are starting to call her the jumping dog now – she is becoming famous.’
