Runner Adopting Dog Who Followed Him Through Gobi Desert Race
Extreme runner Dion Leonard has had some incredible experiences as he’s run ultra-marathons around the world.
The week-long race he recently ran through China’s Gobi Desert is one he will never forget.
Leonard might’ve been keeping an eye out for competitors. Instead, he caught the eye of a little dog who decided to go along for the run through the desert.
That would’ve been cute for a mile or two.
This dog would not give up.
She followed Leonard for days through scorching heat and across mountains.
A wonderful friendship was born.
Leonard has big plans and the perfect name for his new friend.
