When Thomas Neil Rodriguez found out that his dog, called Poh, only had a few months to live, he and his fiancée decided to take him on an adventure to remember.

The 15-year-old pooch has been on an epic seven week road tip around the US and become an internet star in the process.

Poh's Instagram account, which now has more than 11,500 followers, documents his journey across 35 major cities.

The well-travelled pup has covered about 12,000 miles across landmarks including:

Jersey Shore

New York

Santa Monica Pier

Washington DC

Austin, Texas

Las Vegas

And Hollywood

Rodriguez, who adopted adopted Poh from a shelter when he was just eight weeks old, told ABC News: "I’m always traveling, but Poh is my home, my child. I think this resonated with a lot of dog owners.

"They wish they could do stuff like this with their dog and spend these moments, but sometimes life gets in the way.

"I am super blessed that I have actually gotten to do this. People think I take care of Poh, but Poh takes care of me."

Doctors do not know exactly when Poh will pass away, but he certainly looks happy in an Instagram post from Thursday.
