Ski champ Lindsey Vonn and boyfriend Tiger Woods are making things official…by adopting their first pet.
The gold medalist brought home a nearly year-old boxer-mix from a Jupiter, Florida animal shelter.
Apparently Woods had his eye on another dog but the 29-year-old bonded with the pup named Leo as they both have bad knees.
“This definitely brightened my day-I adopted this 9 month old cutie from an animal shelter. He has a bad knee from being hit by a car when he was a puppy and no one wanted him…but I do!! I encourage anyone looking for an animal to adopt from a shelter and save a life!” Vonn posted on her Facebook page.
Vonn was forced to pull out of the Sochi Winter Olympics next month due to further surgery on her injured right knee. At least she has an adorable new buddy to rehab with…along with her loving golf champ.
