Dean Potter Takes Dog BASE Jumping (Video)
Dean Potter is famous for his stunts and ascents, including BASE jumps. But his latest stunt involves him taking a partner along for his antics, and not a human one.
It’s his dog, who’s being billed as the “World’s First Wingsuit BASE Jumping Dog” by a new video from Potter.
