(CBS News) A white stray dog found his stride when he joined a group of long-distance cyclists in China and never left. The dog ran alongside the group for 24 days over 1,139 miles - and 10 mountains.

The dog, nicknamed "Xiaosa" or "Little Sa," began following the bikers on May 4 after a Chinese college student on the trip gave it food, according to China state television CCTV.

One of the cyclists says he intends to bring the inspirational canine home with him.
