Gus Kenworthy has been reunited with his puppies; see the “Today” interview
After weeks of paperwork, political restrictions and international media attention, Gus Kenworthy and his much-publicized family of stray dogs have been reunited here on American soil. After placing second at slopestyle’s Olympic debut, Gus made his way back to the states for a jam-packed media tour. His friend and filmer, Robin MacDonald, stayed behind in an attempt to get several dogs out of Russia and back to Gus’s home in Denver. Unfortunately, two of the dogs did not survive. However, the story was a positive one in that it brought attention to the issue and has directly led to more animal adoptions and donations to animal shelters worldwide. Recently, Gus and Robin found themselves on Today, discussing the adoption process. Now, according to the interview, the only thing Gus has left to do is to potty train the pups.
