Team USA snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis is bringing one of Sochi's famed stray dogs home with her.

Jacobellis posted a few photos of the dog to Instagram at the beginning of the games, and it appears she is following fellow Olympian Gus Kenworthy's lead and bringing the pup back to the U.S. with her.

Sochi's government had originally planned to round up and terminate the strays, but a public outcry caused them to abandon the plan.
