WASHINGTON (WNEW) — Ten of the stray dogs from Sochi, brought to light by American slopestyle skiing silver medalist Gus Kenworthy, arrived at the Washington Animal Rescue League in Northwest D.C. Thursday.

President Bob Ramin hopes people will be able to begin adopting these dogs in about two weeks. He says they are all very sociable and most are between two- to four-years-old, and were chosen for the trip because of their friendly nature.

The dogs will be posted as soon as they are available on the Washington Animal Rescue Organization’s Web site.

“Right now, they’ll be in a kind-of unavailable area just so they’re chillin’.”
