When Chris McDougall rescued Sherman the donkey, he knew taking care of him would be no easy task.

That’s when a friend stepped in to offer some advice.

“She said, ‘Now look, you can’t just stick this donkey in a field with a bow on its tail,” McDougall said. “‘This animal’s been abandoned. It needs a sense of purpose. It needs a job.’ And my thought is, ‘What job do you have for a donkey?’ And I got this idea, like, ‘Well what if we just taught him to be my running partner?’”

Sherman was used to being alone, but with some new friends and a lot of patience, he’s now a long-distance running donkey.
