Professional snowboarder and animal lover Lindsey Jacobellis has picked out one of the adorable stray dogs roaming around Sochi during the Olympic Games, and is making plans to bring the dog back home to Connecticut with her. Fellow Olympian Holly Brooks broke the news on Twitter:
Jacobellis, who is competing in her third Olympics and suffered a bad fall during the semifinals on Sunday, is already showing her pup off:
When asked when the dog was coming home, Jacobellis replied on Instagram, "He is waiting for his Russian passport from vet." She's not the only Olympian eyeing the dogs -- skier Gus Kenworthy has pushed back his departure plans so that he can bring home four dogs with him, one of which he plans to keep, and find good homes for the others.
