This week marks a big one in our Adoptable Running Dog series. It’s the first week we’re showcasing a dog from the brand-spanking-new Monster Milers rescue. That’s right—the animal-shelter running group now has it’s own adoption and fostering program. How cool is that? Keeva is the group’s first rescue, so let’s do the Monster Milers a favor and take her off their hands, okay?
This big ball of fluff, aptly named Cuddles, loves to sit and snuggle, but he’s also up for short runs. You’ll just have to keep up with him—this little guy is surprisingly speedy. Learn more about Cuddles below.
If this face doesn’t make you squeal, I don’t know what will: Jazz is a sweet young pooch with lots of energy and smiles to go around. When she’s not trotting along the Schuylkill Trail with the Monster Milers, you can find her at PAWS’ Grays Ferry adoption center. Learn more about Jazz below.
Age: 1 to 2 years
Breed: Pit bull terrier mix
Size: 44 pounds
Background: Jazz was found abandoned on a vacant property.
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.
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.

Up this week, we’ve got Gus, a friendly young pit bull mix who loves hitting the trails and, even better, resting his head in your lap after after a long run. Find out more about this guy 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.

UPDATE 8/06: It’s official—Venus has been adopted! From here on out, this adorable pup will be living it up with her new adopters, and her new bulldog brother, Cory.
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.
For this week’s adoptable running pup, we’ve got the lovely Pitbull mix Megan. This lady is always up for a run and, more important, is always, always up for a good snuggle. When she’s not out pounding the pavement with the Monster Milers, she can be found hanging out at PAWS’ Grays Ferry location.
