Despite the personally-crushing announcement that she would be pulling out of this year’s Olympics due to a knee injury, skier Lindsey Vonn is finding solace with a new shelter pup named Leo.
The tie that bonds? Leo suffers from a similar knee injury.
“This definitely brightened my day – I adopted this 9 month old cutie from an animal shelter. He has a bad knee from being hit by a car when he was a puppy and no one wanted him … but I do!!” she wrote on Facebook Wednesday, posting a photo of Leo.
She added: “I encourage anyone looking for an animal to adopt from a shelter and save a life! #bumkneebuddies”
