The 29-year-old skier underwent surgery after announcing she will not compete in the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi.
"Surgery was successful!" the athlete wrote on her Facebook page on Wednesday, Jan. 15, captioning a heartwarming photo with the rescue puppy as she recuperates.
"Resting with loved ones and of course my cuddle buddy Leo," Vonn continued. "So thankful to have such great people helping me. Will update more later. Xo Lindsey."
Tiger Woods' ladylove looks serene as she lies in bed, wrapped in a bright orange blanket with her precious four-legged furry friend. Leo, who also has knee problems, is sprawled out on top of his owner and his head is nestled comfortably underneath Vonn's chin.
