Meet Khemjira Klongsanun, a running enthusiast from Bangkok, Thailand, who went viral after she rescued an adorable stray puppy while in the middle of completing a marathon—they even cross the finishing line together!
Khemjira has a heart of gold and knows there is more to life than getting a personal best running time!
When Khemjira was seven miles into completing a local marathon last week, she suddenly spotted a little puppy by the roadside, all alone.
She immediately ran to its side and tried to find its mother or owner—but it was all by itself!
She couldn’t bear to see the adorable pooch abandoned by the side of the road, so she picked it up and carried it in her arms.
She even ran the remaining 19 miles together with her new puppy!
Just look at them go! She never let go, and made sure they crossed the finish line together—how sweet!
After the marathon, Khemjira got the best reward of all. She brought the cute puppy back with her to provide it with a loving and forever home.
The puppy is so content.
Since the marathon, Khemjira has brought the pup for a checkup with the vet, and has named her Nong Chom.
Meet the family! She fits right in.
Now that she’s being cared for and loved, Nong Chom can sleep peacefully, without a care in the world.
Khemjira even went back to the same spot to see if her mom or siblings were around, but nobody was there.
Nong Chom is super grateful for Khemjira rescuing her!
She’s sure to have a life full of love from now on. We wish the family all the best!
