This is Arthur:
For a long time, Arthur didn't have a name -- just another stray dog living in Ecuador. Then he met Team Peak Performance, a Swedish team competing in the grueling Adventure Racing World Championship. One team member, Mikael Lindnord, fed Arthur a meatball.

He followed them on roads:

Things ended up going pretty well for Arthur -- he got a meatball, a name and, if Lindnord has his way, a new owner and a home in Sweden. Good boy.
