Meet Milkshakes, this week’s adoptable running pup, currently being housed at ACCT. (The Monster Milers are hoping to get him into their Adopt a Running Buddy program, but they are low on fosters at the moment; you can learn how to become a foster here.) He’s super sweet and affectionate, and would make for the perfect running pal or Netflix-marathon partner. So start your weekend off right and go spring this guy from ACCT. But first, learn more about him below.  Read more »

This week’s pup is a big ball of love, and he makes for a great running pal, to boot. And just look at those ears! Learn more about him below.

Location: The Monster Milers Adopt A Running Buddy Foster Program. (The success of the Monster Milers’ rescue program — which pairs bright, enthusiastic and loving dogs from our city’s open-intake shelter, ACCT Philly, with active and dedicated foster families until they find their perfect adoptive match — depends on you! If you are interested in fostering, make sure to contact them!)  Read more »

Name: Chico

Age: 1 to 2 years old

Breed: Pit bull terrier mix

Size: 46 pounds

Background: Chico was found as a stray.

Where you can find him: PAWS Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic in Grays Ferry.

Running style: Tune in, Chico! This dapper pup is all ears for your springtime racing and training goals. He’s got some goals of his own, and the Monster Milers volunteers are working hard to help him get there. At the shelter, Chico is learning how to play nicely and be sociable with other dogs and people, and his new running habit goes hand in hand with his practice of calm, quiet manners for use in his forever home. (Plus, he looks great in a bowtie, don’t you think?)

Meet Tucker, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog

Name: Tucker

Age: 1 to 2 years old

Breed: Pit bull terrier mix

Size: 32 pounds

Background: Tucker was found as a stray on the streets of South Philadelphia.

Running style: Tucker is fun and enthusiastic! You might call him a “pocket pittie,” but we think he’s more of a smiley, blocky-headed Rocky runner. He’s got a lot of fire and drive for a smaller-side-of-medium guy, but he rests easily once his work is done. Tucker can certainly go it alone but would clearly rather help you train for your next ultra or share your winter trail-running adventures. He’ll keep you warm during your post-training naps as well.

Meet Dana, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog

danaName: Dana

Age: 1 to 2 years

Breed: Pit bull/terrier mix

Size: 35 pounds

Background: Dana was surrendered by her owner, who could no longer care for her.

Running style: Dana has lots of energy, so she is quick but easily distracted. She has good leash skill and is always ready to sniff out new adventures.

Why Dana is awesome: Dana is very much a puppy, so the world is an exciting place for her. She knows “sit” and “paw” and is working on “lay down.” She gets along with other dogs and loves meeting people.

If you’re looking for a winter cuddle buddy, look no further: Miss Buttersworth is just as sweet as her name implies, and she loves to snuggle. She recently had pups, so she has yet to hit to the trails with the Monster Milers, but they predict she’ll be a lean mean running machine once she regains all of her energy. Learn more about this lovely lady below.
