Like A Streecat Named Bob before it, Finding Gobi is a truly heart-warming story for animal lovers worldwide…

In 2016, Dion Leonard, a seasoned ultramarathon runner, unexpectedly stumbled across a little stray dog while competing in a gruelling 155 mile race across the Gobi Desert. The lovable pup, who earned 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 treacherous Tian Shan Mountains, managing to keep pace with him for nearly 80 miles.

As Dion witnessed the incredible determination of this small animal, he felt something change within himself. In the past he had always focused on winning and being the best, but his goal now was simply to make sure that his new friend was safe, nourished and hydrated. Although Dion did not finish first, he felt he had won something far greater and promised to bring Gobi back to the UK for good to become a new addition to his family. This was the start of a journey neither of them would ever forget with a roller coaster ride of drama, grief, heartbreak, joy and love that changed their lives forever.

Finding Gobi is the ultimate story of hope, of resilience and of friendship, proving once again, that dogs really are ‘man’s best friend.’

Sweet story about dogs, running, miracles and promises kept
I really loved this book. In a world where negativity is the norm, this is a true story of kindness, generosity, personal integrity and courage. Finding a little stray dog he named Gobi changed ultra marathon runner Dion’s world view and shows us that there are kind, caring people all over the world. These values crossed cultural boundaries and language barriers as almost half the planet helped to bring Gobi to her forever home.
I came away from this book feeling lighter and more optimistic and will be dipping back into it every time I need something to cheer me up.
