Stray Dog Joins 155-Mile Race, Finishes It With A New Dad…Amazing!

This little dog, has the energy and agility of a lion! Sure, she looks small and innocent, but she’s a ferocious little guy. She randomly joined a man who was competing in a marathon. He came out of no where. But, he most certainly kept up. On day two of the marathon, the dog joined in on the fun again. Needless to say, the man has fallen in love with Gobi, the dog. Now, he is determined to adopt her, and make her his lifelong friend.


Dion Leonard was racing in a marathon when a stray pup joined him and ran 23 miles in 1 day


“On Day 2, I was at the start line for the race stage and she was standing next to me looking up at me”


“I thought to myself this little dog isn’t going to last very long at my side as we raced off”


But she ended up running the whole day


When the pup named Gobi wasn’t allowed to participate, the organizers would give her a lift so she could be with Leonard


On the final day, the two crossed the finish line together


While the marathon is over, Leonard and Gobi’s lifelong journey is just about to begin


The runner is determined to adopt the pup in spite of all the bureaucratic and financial issues related to moving the dog from China to Scotland


“Gobi picked me to be her pal for life, so I am doing what I can with some great support from around the word to make this happen”
