But Jonathan, aged six, hasn't always lived a lavish lifestyle and was once living in a rescue centre in Georgia, US, where he awaited a death sentence. 

Thankfully his owners, Amanda Klecker and husband Jeremy Warren, adopted him in time and the rest is history. 

"I travel a lot with work and now only fly with airlines that allow dogs in cabin as Jonathan loves the window seat," said Klecker.

"He loves being on planes, trains, and in cars. He likes to cuddle up in his bag or on our laps, and just hang out with us."

She reckons the canine is yet to soil an aircraft.

"He has never had an accident or shown the need to go to the bathroom while he's on the flight, I think he just knows the drill and likes to kick back and relax while we're in the air," said Klecker.

"We love bringing him to Europe because everywhere is so dog-friendly, he gets to experience everything with us from dining out or sunbathing on a rooftop pool. 

"We want to show him the world, not just because he was once destined to only see the inside of a cage, but because we know sharing his adventures can help eliminate the negative stigma surrounding shelter animals and help shed a positive light on adoptable pets."

The couple now claim they don't go on holiday unless Jonathan can come along with them.  

"We both love taking Jonathan on holiday with us and he loves it too, when he sees our suitcases, he sulks until he sees his and then he gets excited," said Klecker.

"He prances around, and this makes us more excited for the trip. We could never leave him behind knowing how much he enjoys his holidays, it's so important to us to take him with us."

Now boasting 16,000 followers on his Instagram account, Jonathan is living the dream after Klecker and Warren adopted him when he was 12 months old. 

"I first saw him at a dog shelter in Connecticut and I instantly fell in love," said Klecker.

"I could see all his ribs and the bones in his spine, and his long thin legs looked even longer by comparison of his tiny body.

"But I still thought he was the most handsome little man and fell in love immediately. His name in the shelter was Johnny, but I could tell right away that he was more of a Jonathan as he is very prim and proper.

"He crosses his legs and gives you the look with his eyes and you know he is judging you... He instantly adapted to the high life on the Upper East Side in Manhattan - he was meant to be here."
