From Sochi to The States: Olympic Silver Medalist Rescues Stray Dogs

Close to three weeks after NBC’s Sochi Olympics coverage ended, “Today” spoke with U.S. freestyle skiing silver medalist Gus Kenworthy Friday morning about his other Olympic victory: bringing stray dogs from Sochi’s streets to America.

Kenworthy originally adopted five dogs that were stranded in Sochi. His friend, photographer Robin Macdonald, stayed in Sochi for a month getting the dogs treatment while also battling Russian politicians who tried to block the pups from leaving.

Macdonald traveled with the dogs from Moscow to New York City.  Unfortunately, not all of the rescued pups survived. The ones that did seemed quite content on the “Today” set.
