Stray Dog Adopts Runner During an Ultramarathon Across China

This little dog named Gobi is one tough canine companion.

She followed this ultramarathon runner across China.

Witness the epic story of the little stray dog that adopted this ultramarathon runner.

Ultramarathon runner Dion Leonard knew it was odd when a little stray dog hung around his camp. It was even odder when it decided to run with him across China.

In all, the little stray canine companion now named Gobi ran 125 kilometers with Dion. It appears this little dog adopted this hard core runner before he had a chance to adopt her.

The friendship between man and canine can ford rivers and miles of desert. This great tale is a living example of such a match made in really harsh conditions.
