LOOK: USA snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis adopts a Sochi stray dog

By Matt Norlander | Staff Writer

It would seem Americans are bringing back nearly as many animals as they are medals at this year's Olympics.

American slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy already has a batch of dogs he's looking to bring back stateside. And now we've seen Lindsey Jacobellis adopt a pup of her own. Jacobellis, who won silver at th 2006 Games but failed to find the podium in snowboard cross four years ago in Vancouver and at the Sochi Games, at least will have something to bring back home.

She shared a photo of this dog 10 days ago.

And now it would seem this little fella is now part of her family. Just want to know: What's the name of that fur babe?
