Runner Ends Up Adopting Stray Dog Who Ran 77 Miles of Grueling Marathon With Him

Dion Leonard expected to meet some new friends while participating in a seventy seven mile race in a new country. However, he never expected to meet Gobi, a truly athletic little pup. They ran through most of the race together, and even crossed the finish line together. After Dion returned home, he started a GoFundMe campaign to cover the costs related to bringing Gobi home to live with him, and was successful in doing so – the two friends will soon be reunited! What an awesome story!
