Gus Kenworthy wasn't the only person who made a point to save Sochi strays as they were being culled in the weeks before this year's Winter Olympics. Many non-Olympian dog-lovers also attempted to adopt their own Sochi strays, but only so many were successful. Luckily for Houston woman Carol Davis, she was one of them.
Davis and her new dog, Stetson, touched down in Texas earlier this week after making the long trek from Russia. The founder of a border collie rescue group, Davis immediately took action to adopt a stray when she learned that Sochi street dogs were being poisoned to clear the streets for the Olympic games. She told a local NBC affiliate that she is considering adopting another dog from Sochi as well.
"I thought if I could just take one, that I can save from the streets and give him a life, it will be something I can carry the rest of my life and my dog's life," Davis said. "It was just some special thing I wanted to do."
