Meet Elfish Presley, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog


When the Monster Milers sent us this week’s adoptable running dog, we couldn’t help but chuckle at her name. I mean, Elfish Presley? Come on—that is just too darn clever. But it really fits: This dog has the most adorably pointy elfish ears you can imagine. See more pics of this awesome four-legged running buddy, and find out how you can take her home below.

Meet Taney, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog

For this week’s adoptable running dog, we have the big, cuddly Taney (named after the Taney Dragons, of course). This big guy stays calm and collected around children, noise and other dogs, making him a great partner for runs through the city. When he’s not out pounding the pavement around Northern Liberties, you can find him getting belly rubs at Street Tails Animal Rescue. Find out more about Taney below.

UPDATE 8/8 at 3:55 p.m.: WOW, that was fast. We just heard from PAWS that Blue has been adopted. Congrats, little buddy! Enjoy your forever home.

We’re pretty much obsessed with Blue, our featured running pup up for adoption this week. He’s one of those not-too-big, not-too-small running dogs that’s perfect for a city dweller.

He comes to us by way of the Monster Milers, the dog-loving runners who keep him panting each week, and the folks at the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society—you know ‘em as PAWS—who’s keeping Blue happy and healthy at their adoption center at Second and Arch streets in Old City.

Up this week, we’ve got the brindle-coated beauty, Venus. This friendly pooch loves to hit the trails for runs either short and speedy or long and leisurely. When she’s not out exploring the city with the Monster Milers, you can find her at the PAWS’ Grays Ferry location.

This is Bailey.

For our second edition of This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog, we’ve got the oh-so-adorable  Yorkshire Terrier mix, Bailey. Bailey is a small ball of energy who loves exploring Philly with The Monster Milers, and would make a great companion on your runs through the city. When he’s not clocking miles along the Delaware River, you can find this little guy hanging out at the PAWS Adoption Center in Old City.
