DENVER -- A Denver dog abandoned at a shelter is finding new life and fame for a unique ability.

Olly's owner, Hannes Gehring, found out something special about the dog he adopted at a rescue shelter over a year ago when a squirrel happened to cross their paths.

Olly can climb trees.

Having honed his skills over the ensuing months, Olly can now climb to about 10 feet -- meaning no Denver squirrel is safe.

Watch the video above to see Olly's high-flying tactics.
