The Inspiring Story of Finding Gobi, With Author Dion Leonard

In this episode of Pets Mean Business, Dustin McAdams talks to author Dion Leonard about his new book, Finding Gobi.

An ultra-marathon runner, Leonard, tells the inspiring story of how he crosses paths with a scrappy, stray dog while competing in a 150-mile race through the Gobi Desert in China and Mongolia. The lovable pup, who would later earn the name “Gobi”, proved that what she lacked in size, she more than made up for in heart, as she went step for step with Dion over the Tian Shan Mountains and the black sands of the Gobi Desert, keeping pace with him for nearly 80 miles.

As Dion witnessed the incredible determination and heart of this small animal, he found his own heart undergoing a change as well. Whereas in the past these races were all about winning, his goal now was to make sure he and Gobi’s friendship continued well after the nish line.

However, before he could take her home, Gobi went missing in the sprawling Chinese city where she was being kept. Dion, with the help of strangers, set out to track her down, and reunite forever with the amazing animal that changed his life and proved to him and the world that miracles are possible.
