Adorable: Brave Basset Hound Overcomes Daunting Obstacle!

A basset hound is afraid to jump over a barrier.

Is something keeping you from pursuing your dreams? Here’s a reminder that you’re capable of way more than you give yourself credit for! This reluctant basset hound didn’t think he could get past the gate separating him from his owner, so he stood in the doorway for quite a while. However, with a little encouragement, he was finally able to overcome his fear… and the little basset hound jumps the gate in a great show of bravery!


You might be thinking, “That’s nice and all, but the obstacles in my life are way more complicated.” Luckily, we have another example for you. When these three tiny pups were trapped by a large wall of toilet paper rolls, they each had a different response to the situation. Once pooch courageously leaped right over the blockade, one cleverly found an opening to squeeze through, and one… well, one just decided to be a bad sport. What this teaches us is that there’s more than one way to overcome a problem!

Did these clips give you the motivation you needed to face your fears? If not, did they at least make you smile? Yeah, we thought so.
