U.S. slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy found a pack of stray puppies in Sochi while he was waiting to compete, and rescued them.

Sochi has come under harsh criticism for its alleged roundup and extermination of stray dogs that were living in the resort town, prior to the beginning of the Olympic games.

Kenworthy has already become so fond of the puppies that he has pledged to bring them back to the United States with him when he returns. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
