Team USA freeskier Gus Kenworthy is not only busy getting ready for his Olympic debut, but apparently he's also taken on the side job of rescuing dogs in Sochi.

Kenworthy, of Telluride, Colo., tweeted a photo of him with one of the puppies Tuesday morning. He wrote, "Oh my glob, look who I just found! :) #sochistrays."

A little while later he tweeted another photo with more, saying, "Puppy love is real to puppies."

The puppies are believed to be strays wandering the streets of Sochi.

Kenworthy is working to bring the pups home. On Wednesday he tweeted, "Also, for the people wondering, I've lined up kennels 4 the pups & made vaccination appointments. Doing all I can to bring them home w/ me!"
