U.S. Olympian Gus Kenworthy Is Reunited With His Sochi Dogs On Today Show! Find Out Why This Story Just Got Even More Bittersweet HERE

Filed under: Sad SadHealthOlympicsAdoptionPuppyDogRescue

Remember when Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy rescued four Sochi puppies and their momma?

We were so excited that several strays stuck in Russia were going to get out and find good homes in the good ol' U.S. of A.!

Sadly, in the most heartbreaking news we've ever heard, two of the puppies have died. Noooo! Say it isn't so!

Gus' friend Robin Macdonald had stayed behind in Sochi to make sure the pups would get home safe, but has explained that the deceased pups died after Russian authorities "refused to let [Macdonald] bring [them] to get treatment."

The two were on the Today show this morning with Matt Lauer and Gus was finally reunited with the remaining pups, including their precious momma.

Gus is gonna keep two of the pups, another one will go to his brother and his fiancé and the momma dog will be adopted by Gus's mom.

Watch the bittersweet reunion and their explanation of why the process took so long to bring them home (above).

And, say goodbye to one of the pups, in which Robin posted a pic and sweet message (below).
