This Remarkable Dog Walked 430 Miles Through A Dangerous Jungle And Became A Swedish Celebrity.

A team of Swedish athletes by the name of Team Peak were in Ecuador competing in the Adventure Racing World Championship, a race that combines continuous hiking, trekking, mountain biking, and kayaking. When they stopped for a food break before their 20-mile trek through the rainforest, team member Mikael Lindnord noticed a stray dog sitting nearby. He felt bad for the dog, so he fed him a meatball. As they continued the race, the dog followed them.

The stray dog followed Team Peak for 430 miles through the Amazon rainforest.

Team Peak feared for the dogs safety, so they tried to get rid of of him, but no matter what they did, he wouldn't leave.

Arthur even followed them on their 36-mile kayak course, and ending up being pulled in by Lindnord.

Every time the dog got tired, the team would stop and get some rest with him. They named him Arthur after King Arthur.
