Good News: US Olympians Adopt Sochi Strays

 

Russia reportedly ordered the extermination of hundreds of stray dogs in the Olympic Village before the games, but do-gooders did what they could to help!  Shelters were set up, and good samaritans have been trying to rescue the animals.  U.S. freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy plans to adopt not one, but five dogs — a mama and her four puppies — from Sochi.  Snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis might not be going home with a medal from the Sochi Winter Olympics, but she will be going home with an adorable new friend.  Jacobellis adopted one of Sochi’s many stray dogs before heading back to the United States.  See their cute pups here!
