Who needs an Olympic medal? Take home a puppy instead

Team USA is winning the puppy Olympics.
Snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis is the latest athlete to be working out the details to adopt a stray dog.
She posted a few pictures of her newest family member, saying that she's just waiting for paperwork to bring the little guy home.
Jacobellis had a rough run at Sochi, crashing out of the snowboard cross in the semifinals.
Who knew the consolation prize would be a puppy?
Fellow USA skier Gus Kenworthy picked up a silver medal in slopestyle skiing earlier in the Games and he has decided to bring not one, but five pups back to the States.
Team USA is an animal friendly bunch. Check out other US Olympians and their furry friends.
