Stray Dog Joins The Race And Finds A Loving Owner In The End (8 pics + 1 gif)

Posted in Animals   8 Aug 2016   / 3766 views

Dion Leonard was racing in a marathon when a stray pup joined him and ran 23 miles in 1 day

“On Day 2, I was at the start line for the race stage and she was standing next to me looking up at me”

“I thought to myself this little dog isn’t going to last very long at my side as we raced off”

“But she ended up running the whole day”

When the pup named Gobi wasn’t allowed to participate, the organizers would give her a lift so she could be with Leonard

On the final day, the two crossed the finish line together

While the marathon is over, Leonard and Gobi’s lifelong journey is just about to begin

The runner is determined to adopt the pup in spite of all the bureaucratic and financial issues related to moving the dog from China to Scotland

“Gobi picked me to be her pal for life, so I am doing what I can with some great support from around the word to make this happen”
