This is a great week for Sochi strays! Olympic snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis is following in her fellow Olympian Gus Kenworthy’s footsteps by rescuing one of the city’s stray dogs and bringing it back to America with her.

The 28-year-old athlete posted an adorable picture to her Instagram last week with the caption “Me and my pup;” and teammate Holly Brooks shared a photo of the snowboarder cuddling the no-longer-stray pooch and smiling ear to ear on Twitter. You can already see the bond forming between the pup and the self-proclaimed “animal lover”.

The adoption process in Sochi may be slower than expected as Kenworthy was forced to stay past his departure date to complete the drawn out process. However long it takes to get these pups back to America, we hope these athletes know that they are admired, are great role models, and have won gold in our hearts.
