SOCHI, Russia -- Christy Nicolay is an Olympic sports producer who s from Portland and now lives in LA. She s navigating the reams of paperwork to bring a little puppy named Sasha home from Sochi.

I don t think he would have lasted much longer, she said. He was sitting all by himself at the bus stop in the rain and just trying to stay warm by cuddling up to anyone s shoes that he could, and we ran down there and he just crawled into our arms and that was it.

Christy acknowledges there are many strays at home in the United States who need homes as well, but she also says you can t help who you fall in love with.

If you would like to adopt a special friend you can go to Humane Society International or the Oregon Humane Society.
