Dog climbs Everest and meets men at local temple

PIC FROM CATERS – (PICTURED:Rupee in India) – A homeless dog rescued from a dump is thought to be the first dog in the world to climb Mount Everest. Motivated mutt, Rupee, made history after scaling the worlds tallest mountain with owner, Joanne Lefson and reaching the iconic Everest base camp. Rupee, the first dog ever officially recorded at the camp, undertook the gruelling challenge against all odds after being rescued by Joanne from a dump site in Ladakh, Northern India. At just eight months old the plucky pup was dying of dehydration and starvation when he was adopted by Joanne. SEE CATERS COPY
