A star dog named Arthur followed an extreme sports team for an incredible 430 miles and was adopted. The Swedish group Team Peak Performance were eating a meal before a 20 mile trek in the Adventure Racing World Championship in Ecuador when they saw a stray dog. One team member decided to give it a meatball to eat.
Amazingly, the dog decided to follow the team for the rest of the tournament, even swimming at night as the four men kayaked. They tried repeatedly to get rid of the dog for his own safety, but he wouldn’t be deterred. After finishing, the four men decided to adopt the dog and name him Arthur. He is now being flown to Sweden.
