Arthur. The street dog from Ecuador that completed the planet's most intense test of endurance and won hearts around the world.
Adventure Racing is known as the most grueling endurance sport on the planet. Traversing hundreds of miles through various terrain, climates, environments and multiple disciplines, it's more often a race of survival than time across a finish line. In 2014, Mikael Lindnord and his team from Sweden traveled to Ecuador for the Adventure Racing World Championships representing their country and their sponsor Peak Performance. A stage for world class athletes from around the world, this race wasn't just another competition; it was a career changing pursuit vying for the title of World Champions. However, what started out as a team effort of 4, quickly took an unexpected turn when an unlikely 5th teammate joined them on day four of the race. Arthur's story is nothing short of heroic and miraculous as he comes face to face with the human whose tenacious heart matched his own.

Charlie. The little paralyzed dog that went from death row to nomadic, adventure pro.
The way I met Charlie in 2009 is anything but typical. Found paralyzed in a ditch and headed for certain euthanasia, fate stepped in and our paths crossed that May in Florida. No one could have prepared me for the adventures that would follow. From the mountains of Colorado to the coastal redwoods of California, this little dog navigates with his heart and inspires everyone that he meets to do the same. Step inside Charlie's story of being hours away from euthanasia to living a nomadic, adventurous life that inspires everyone to live life a little far fetched.
