We knew it was only a matter of time before we heard about the next Sochi stray dog adoption. After Gus Kenworthy, Lindsey Jacobellis, and three U.S. hockey team players showed their puppy love in photos on social media, Amanda Bird, spokesperson for the U.S. bobsled and skeleton team and former bobsledder, is the latest athlete to adopt in Russia.

Bird has picked out her pup at the Povodog shelter, a shelter set up by Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska to take in stray dogs, and is ready to take her new fur-baby back to the United States as soon as possible. Povodog posted a photo of the former Olympian and her beautiful pooch on its Facebook page. Bird is holding the black and brown baby, coddling this former stray tight in her arms.

Despite all of the unwanted stray dogs in Sochi, the adoption process proves to be a difficult one. Bird said, “It’s just getting the pup home that’s complicated. I’m on a chartered flight that will not allow the dog. But if I get the dog to Munich, I should be fine.” We hope all of these athletes and their new puppies make it home to the U.S. quickly and safely.
