Several dogs, actually:
Who picked the dogs up? Well, that would be American freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy.
The freshly crowned silver-medal slopestyler from Telluride, Colo., picked up four puppies and their mother on the streets of Rosa Khutor and he’s making arrangements to have them sent home to the United States.
“I’ve been around animals all my life,” Kenworthy said of the hundreds of dogs roaming the streets in Sochi and the mountains above the Olympic city. “It’s hard to watch.”
Kenworthy tweeted a picture of himself cuddling four of the dogs. “Puppy love is real to puppies,” he wrote.
If you have the space and the inclination, get yourself a rescue dog. You’ll never regret it.
