Gus Kenworthy and friend Robin Macdonald keep the famed Sochi pups close while swinging by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon studios in New York City on Friday (March 14).
The 22-year-old Olympic slope-styler medalist and Robin stopped by The Today Show earlier in the morning after the Sochi pups — Jake, Rosa, Mishka, Mom, and Stryder – arrived on American soil.
“Getting yelled for taking pics with @jimmyfallon & the pups. Apparently no dogs, no cameras! Whoops! @guskenworthy,” Robin tweeted, after giving the pups a bath.
Gus recently told Elle mag about the attention he’s received since his adoption went viral last month: “One of the coolest things that’s happened since then is the other day we were here [in NYC] this guy came up to me and was like, ‘Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I work at a shelter here, and we’ve had 10 times the adoptions this week since you posted [your photos] than we’ve had in the longest time. It’s so awesome how much awareness you’ve brought to the issue and how many people have come in and adopted dogs because of it.’”
“That was really heartwarming to know that this small act of kindness that I demonstrated really caught on, and now all these other dogs are finding forever homes. That’s awesome.”
