Dog Walks 400 Miles to World Cup

World Cup Dog

Four British soccer fans walking from Argentina to Brazil for the World Cup games thought that the black dog who joined them in Uruguay was homeless. They befriended him, fed him and called him Jefferson.

But the dog did have an owner, and when he heard about the Brits and their canine traveling companion, he contacted the group through Facebook. They made plans to meet up in Porto Alegre, Brazil, so Ignacio (Nacho) Etchetchury could be reunited with his pet, who he calls Negro.

After walking an estimated 463 miles over the course of two months, the dog’s emotional reunion with Etchetchury Sunday was captured on video. Etchetchury said he was grateful to the soccer fans for taking care of his dog.
