This week’s adoptable dog is named after Ikea’s Swedish cinnamon rolls — so in case you hadn’t already figured it out, she’s pretty sweet. And bonus: She’s a good runner. (Just, like most of us, not so much in 90-degree weather). Learn more about her below!
This week’s adoptable running dog, Kodiak, is going through a bit of tough time: He was found as a stray and he’s currently recovering from a non-contagious skin condition. But, as a lesson in resilience, he’s not letting it get him down — he’s cuddly as can be and the Monster Milers say he makes for a great, steady-paced running partner. You can learn more about him and/or fawn over him below!
This week’s adoptable running dog isn’t quite as fast as his name would suggest, but he would make a great running buddy for a runner who likes to keep a nice, slow pace. Bonus: He’s guaranteed to give you plenty of post-run cuddles when you get home. Learn more about him below!
As you might’ve already guessed, Meatball is not the leanest nor the swiftest of running partners, but she is still a solid buddy for hitting the Schuylkill River Trail on your shakeout runs: she keeps a steady (though slower) pace. Bonus points: The girl has a GREAT smile. Learn more about this sweet gal below.
Say hello to Skunk, this week’s adoptable running dog, who gets his name from his colors not his scent. This young guys is super friendly with dogs and humans alike, and the Monster Milers think — with a little attention — he’d make for a great trail buddy. Learn more about him below.
I’m not going to lie: Every week, the minute I get the email from our friends at the Monster Milers containing the photos and info on our weekly adoptable running dog feature, I selfishly want to run to wherever the dog of the day is and take them home with me, forgoing this blog post entirely. I don’t do this because, if I did, I would be living in a house with enough dogs to start a small dog army and no boyfriend. Because he surely would’ve left me. This urge to run to the shelter and nab the pup was reaaaaalllly strong — perhaps the strongest it’s ever been — today when I saw George. I mean … would you LOOK at this little guy? So please, save me from myself, and you go scoop him up from PAWS. But first, learn more about him below.
Having a rough Friday? Take a moment and look at the face of the week’s adoptable running dog, Bruno. Feel better? Thought so. This guy, who’s currently hanging out at PAWS, is an enthusiastic, steady-paced pup who could just be your new favorite spring-training partner. Learn more about him below.
This week’s adoptable running dog is a cute, smaller — but energetic! — pup currently spending his days at PAWS. Like some humans, he’s a big fan of exercise, so if you’re looking for a workout partner to keep you accountable, he may be your perfect fit. Learn more about him below.
Every week, we team up with local shelter-running group the Monster Milers to feature an adoptable dog who could make a great running or fitness companion. This week’s feature has been our dog of the week before … twice, actually. Helen has been with Northern Liberties’ Street Tails Animal Rescue since October 2015 — that’s almost a full 500 days! She’s been one of the Milers’ favorite running buddies since she stepped foot, er, paw into the rescue and they simply can’t understand why no one’s scooped her up. So, Philly running community, how about we make it a point to find this gal a home?
Breezy, whose name matches his running style, is hanging out at ACCT — soon to undergo renovations, limiting spots for pups — waiting for his forever home. The folks from the Monster Milers say he’s a great runner who would make a great cold-weather training partner. So go spring him from ACCT, why don’t you?
