Summary

For fans of A Streecat Named Bob comes Finding Gobi, the heartwarming true story of a dog who captured the hearts of the world.

Finding Gobi is the ultimate story of hope and friendship - proving once again that dogs really are man's best friend.

In 2016, Dion Leonard, an ultramarathon runner, stumbled across a little stray dog while competing in a gruelling 155 mile race across the Gobi Desert. The pup earned the name Gobi as she went step for step with Dion, keeping pace with him for nearly 80 miles. What Gobi lacked in size, she made up for in heart.

Dion had always focused on winning, but as he witnessed the incredible determination of this small animal, he felt something inside him change. This is a story of a life-changing friendship between one man and a little stray dog called Gobi.

My son Loved this

He was really fascinated that it was a true story and could go on to find out more and follow Gobi and Dion on social media. A lovely story beautifully read.
