Arthur The Dog Followed Athletes For 400 Miles

A stray dog Arthur begs an athlete for some food, then follows him for over 400 miles!

Dogs are well known for their incredible loyalty, so it is no great wonder that they make great teammates. A Swedish extreme racing team, Peak Performance, learned this from first hand when they met Arthur, an incredibly strong stray dog who went from being a lonely stray dog to a world wide sensation!

Meet Arthur, the lonely stray dog! Arthur was dirty, alone and starving too in the harsh rainforest before he ran into the Swedish team. He was starving and was very weak from his months of surviving all alone.

The athletes were competing in a long 430-mile race through Ecuador when they took a well deserved break to eat some lunch. Poor Arthur watched with his sweet puppy hungry eyes as the athletes unwrapped their food. The team needed all the calories they could have, and of course food was really hard to come by in the middle of this jungle, but the team captain Mikael Lindlord gave Arthur a meatball. What happens next will warm your heart. This is really heart touching!

A single small act of kindness bonded Arthur with his new human pal. Lonely sweet Arthur finally found “his pack.”

Arthur was following the Swedish team through over 400 miles of all sorts of brutal elements. At one point the team was told that they will have to leave him behind.

“It all started with me giving him a meatball when we were eating just right before the long trekking. When we finally set off we did it with some other teams, and I did not quite understand that Arthur was following us until we were alone and he was still there with us. At one point, we had to take a small break and the dog was totally wrecked. We opened two cans of food and let him eat too, because there was no way that he could find food alone in this jungle” Mikael Lindnord says.
