LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A Las Vegas dog is getting global attention after a hilarious video was shared on Twitter by a 13 Action News reporter.

Marissa Kynaston shared video of her dog, Charger, getting a lift from her dad after Charger's fear of heights got the best of him.

Charger is an 85 pound Golden Retriever so perhaps that's why it's so funny to watch him get carried up a flight of stairs.

The video shows Charger hanging on for dear life.

Now, Marissa's video is going viral.

Outlets such as MSN, The Daily Telegraph, The Herald Sun, and Yahoo! News have all picked up the story. European Broadcasting Union has even reached out so Charger could soon become famous overseas.

Marissa says they were in California visiting family and that stairs are not something Charger usually deals with in Las Vegas.

Check out the original tweet below.

Thanks for the laughs, Charger! You're a good boy.
