Go Team USA! More Sochi Strays Adopted by American Olympians

If Olympic medals were handed out for doing good deeds, the athletes from Team USA would be bringing home even more Gold!

While Russian authorities quietly ordered a massive effort to destroy the thousands of stray dogs roaming the streets of Sochi in advance of the Winter Olympic Games, good Samaritans, rescuers, and visiting athletes have been working, instead, to save these dogs, giving them loving homes in America!

Check out the adorable new best buddy adopted by Olympic Snowboarder, Lindsey Jacobellis:


Team USA hockey forward T.J. Oshie and his St. Louis Blues teammate David Backes both found love in Sochi:


American Women’s Hockey olympian Kelli Stack is cheered on by her new love, Horsey:

And, freeskier Gus Kenworthy is working hard to bring home a mother and her four precious pups:


With five more days remaining in the Winter Olympic Games, there’s still plenty of time for more Olympians to bring home what will surely prove to be the best prize of all – a new best friend!

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any browser
    compatibility issues? A small number of my blog readers
    have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any suggestions to help fix this problem?

    I think it is great they stepped up and helped. Last time I heard there was a 6 month quarantine for animals entering the USA. Wonder if it was waved for these animals? It would be horrible for them to have to be locked in some govt. quarantine for the first 6 months.
