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?
This week’s adoptable running dog is big, strong and sweet, much like the guy he’s named after. (Um, have you SEEN the real Rock’s Instagram? He is the king of — way too long — super-sweet captions.) And his size doesn’t keep him from trotting alongside his pals on runs. Long story short: He’s a keeper. Learn more about this cuddle bug below.
Ummmmmm, can we all just take a moment to appreciate the undeniable cuteness of this week’s adoptable running pup? His name is Slush Puppie (yes, with an i and an e), and he’s not yet a year old, so he’s new to the running game. That said, the Monster Milers are confident he’ll make for a great running partner once he grows up a little bit. Learn more about him below.
Rocky fans, we’ve found your four-legged soulmate. This week’s adoptable pup, Rocky, is currently hanging out at ACCT, but we’re pretttttty sure he’d rather be running the Rocky steps with you. Learn more about him below.
Be warned: You’re about to shake your head at humanity for a minute. This week’s adoptable running dog, a one-year-old pup by the name of Sugar Plum, was kept outside for most of her life before being surrendered to ACCT, sick and underweight. (Shaking your head at humanity? I told you.) But a rough first year of life doesn’t stop her from being as sweet as can be, once she warms up to you. And the Monster Milers think that, once she’s back in tip-top shape, she’ll make a great running partner. Learn more about her below.
