homeless man picks up stray dogs as he pedals across country. internet joins in

A man and his 11 dogs began a journey across America with nothing other than a bike, a cart and a sense of family. Now, more than 2,000 miles later, the family is still going strong and they finally have a home to call their own.

A homeless man couldn't allow a bunch of stray dogs to receive the same treatment he has had to endure.

-----

Alicia Edrington, 24, told the Daily News she encountered Steve riding a bicycle with a cart attachment, which he carried the dogs in.

---!

His story has gotten national attention and donors have given him a new trailer to live in with the dogs.

Along the way Steve met someone who donated a vehicle for him to use, and he brought the dogs with them. He told Edrington that when he left he had $6 in his pocket but used the money for food for the animals.

-----
A used trailer was donated to the man who has reached Indiana and is working with a counselor to help find a mobile home park to place it. The page has more than doubled its goal of $10,000 as of Thursday afternoon for the family's living expenses.
