Publisher's Summary

Like A Street Cat 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-mil e 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.'

    Story
    "A heart-felt story ... "

    A truly heart-felt story that reminds us the infinite power of resilience, hope and compassion. A well-written, multi-dimensional book, which not only gives an insight into the world of extreme sports (ultra-marathon) but also a journey of self-discovery that a lot of us can relate to, and a glimpse of China from the author's perspective.
    Gobi is truly heroic and inspirational.
    An encouraging read for anyone who is facing the 'impossible' challenge(s) in life to courageously embrace the fear and uncertainty and be pleasantly surprised at the end by your own courage and strength within.

    Story
    "Angel Gobi"

    This story really touched my heart. Having been a long distance runner and having been through some difficult times in between I could relate to so much of Dion and Gobi's story! It was beautifully told and so real and sincere.

    Animals can teach us so so much and are the worlds angel healers!

    Until one has really loved an animal a part of ones soul remains unawakened..... Anatole France.....

    Read this book! It's a life changer!

    Thank you Dion and Gobi and Lucja and kitty!
