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 is a little messy here, but he cleans up nice — trust. 

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?

LOOK at that face!

LOOK at that face!

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.

Meet Sugar Plum, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog 

sugar plum leadBe 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.
