A stray dog has completed a 1,100 mile trek across China with a group of cyclists. The dog ran with the group for over 20 days climbing over 12 mountains on their journey along the Sichuan-Tibet highway through all manners of weather.
The brave little dog who has been named "Xiaosa" or "Little Sa" met the cyclists near the beginning of their journey. All it took was for one of them to feed her a little snack for her to dedicate herself to the rest of their journey running alongside their bikes. The litte dog soon became a national hero in China known as a mascot to the cyclists.
One of the cyclists created a blog about his journey where he documented the dogs adventures - by the end of this race the blog had received over 40,000 fans! Little Sa's breed and age are unknown but this once hungry and lonely dog has now been adopted by one of the cyclists after receiving a clean bill of health from a vet.
