Stray Dog Follows Hiker Who Adopts Him And Brings Him On Many Adventures

I think all of us enjoy getting away from it all from time to time, but there are some of us who do it often.

That includes some who live a nomadic lifestyle, such as Nikki Delventhal. A nomadic lifestyle provides adventure because you never know what is around the next corner.

When Nikki was out for a hike with her mother, they were being followed by a stray dog. That dog just wouldn’t leave their side, and even chased after them when they drove away at the end of the hike.

Nikki decided to take the dog and see if he was okay. It all happened on a hiking trip in Albuquerque, New Mexico. At the time, Nikki had already given up her apartment for full-time travel. The stray dog happened to show up at just the right time and Nikki realized that they could be quite a team.

She shared on Instagram: “I rescued a stray puppy!!!! I still cannot believe how we found each-other! My sweet boy, I love him so much!”

Since that time, Nikki has taken the dog in and named him Camper. Now that she is living a nomadic lifestyle, he is her constant companion.

She loaded up her Prius, put all of her belongings that wouldn’t fit in storage, and hit the highway.

Nikki uses sponsorships and endorsements on her YouTube channel and Instagram account to help fund her travel, but she also gets donations for animal shelters.

It looks like these two are making quite a team and we can’t wait to see where they go next.
