    A stray dog who befriended a team of adventurers on an extreme sports race in Ecuador has finally been freed from quarantine to start his new life in Sweden.

    Mikael Lindnord adopted stray Arthur after meeting him when his Team Peak Performance took on the 430-mile Adventure Racing World Championship last November.

    Arthur's heartwarming story went around the world after he joined Lindnord and his three team-mates on their endurance race through South America.

    And when they decided they couldn't leave him behind, they applied to the Swedish Board of Agriculture so that Arthur would be allowed to live with them in Sweden.

    Today, after four months in quarantine, he was finally cleared to leave and joined a delighted Mikael and his new family to start his new life.

    All terrains: Despite numerous attempts by the team to get rid of Arthur, primarily for his own safety, he refused to go. It meant when he got stuck in the knee-deep mud they helped get him out and when he was exhausted, they stopped to take a break

    Determined: Before one of the segments of the race - a 36 mile kayak around the coast - organizers warned the team that taking Arthur along posed a risk to his and their safety. But Arthur swam alongside the boat and ended up being pulled in by Lindord

    Hey -I like this story by the way.
    Much better thread than the stupid fucking Benjy Bronk girlfriend podcast threads.
    This one has a hero I can cheer for.
