There are no gold medals presented to anyone at the Olympics for saving a rescue dog, but the dedicated athlete wins a doghouse full of gold medals from humane supporters and animal lovers across the world - a fine tribute to an athlete.

He is a very sweet man. I think that came shining through during the Olympics. I will certainly miss seeing him in future Olympics, but, hopefuly they will have him do commentary! GOOD LUCK MICHAEL!

I admire this man, not for his olympic medals, but for saving a rescue dog.

I never heard him talk about how he got his dog, and I've seen many of his interviews over the years. He should have promoted it more. All Micheal has to do is say that he does something and people jump on it. He could've used that to the advantage of more shelter animals.
