Lindsey Vonn adopts dog with ‘bum knee’

Jan 8, 2014, 8:46 PM EST

Lindsey Vonn has a new friend to help her as she gets set for season-ending knee surgery that will keep her from competing in Sochi.

That friend is Leo, a 9-month-old homeless brindle boxer.

WPBF TV cameras caught Vonn with her puppy and offered this report:

Vonn showed up alone to finish paperwork and get a veterinarian check on Leo, the brindle boxer mix she and boyfriend Tiger Woods first saw the day before Christmas Eve.

Initially, Woods wanted a different pit-bull mix, shelter workers said, but Vonn came back the next day and said “I won!” and took Leo home.

Asked by WPBF 25 News why she chose that particular dog, Vonn replied “He has a bad knee, just like me.”

Vonn’s early outlook for 2018 Olympics
