Marathon Runner Rescues Abandoned Puppy, Carrying Him 19 Miles To The Finish Line

A marathon runner ended up winning a different prize after she spotted a lost puppy midway through a race.

Runner Khemjira Klongsanun was participating in the Chombueng marathon in Ratchaburi, Western Thailand, when she saw runners dodging a puppy seven miles into the race. Noticing that there were no houses, people or other dogs in the vicinity she decided to stop and check on the puppy. The puppy, a bangkaew (Thai wolf dog) was trembling and alone, but she managed to coax him over to her.
