2014 Sochi Olympics: Stray dog resting at Team USA hotel after adoption (Photo)


As reported yesterday, members of the men’s USA Hockey Team are the latest athletes to adopt some of the stray dogs and puppies during the 2014 Sochi Olympics and now we see first hand what their kind efforts have done.

Ryan Miller, goalie for the Buffalo Sabres posted a photo of a couple stray dogs that were adopted by members of the team which have been relocated to the family hotel hosted by the NHL’s Player Association.

The dogs were cleaned up, given food and have been spending time with their new owners.

Members of the men’s hockey team aren’t the first to extend a helping hand to the loveable dogs, but rather just one of many athletes who’ve grown attached to the sweet pups. Fellow Olympians (not only United States) have decided to adopt some (or many) of the stray dogs – many of which that are being kept outside the city in a makeshift shelter sustained by an unnamed Russian billionaire.

Very cool of Mr. Miller and fellow members of Team USA (and all athletes who’ve adopted dogs).
