While our Friday pup feature is usually a running dog, fact is, not everyone is a runner — and walking is great exercise, too! In fact, a recent study found that dog owners walk 22 more minutes per day than folks who don’t own dogs. And all that walking adds up! So this week, we have the very cute Joey, a pup who is not so much a runner but would love to trot alongside while you get those 22 minutes in each day. Learn more about him below.
Oh, Fridays. They are the best for a multitude of reasons (HEYYYYY, weekend), one of which is our adoptable running dog of the week. And man, is this week’s a gem. His name is Bowser, he’s eight months old, and the Monster Milers say he loves everyone he meets. Learn more about him below!
This week’s adoptable running dog Fox is the Liam Hemsworth of puppies: So. Freakin’. Cute. It. Hurts. If you’d like to be his Miley — come on, you know you want to — you can find him hanging out at PAWS until some lucky human takes him off the market.
The Monster Milers tell us this week’s adoptable running dog Elroy is ACCT’s (that’s Philly’s open-intake shelter) longest-term resident. Let’s change that, shall we, Philly runners? But first, learn more about him below.
This week’s adoptable running dog, Niko, is a small, but long-legged guy who will happily keep you company on your outdoor adventures — or curl up with you indoors. You can learn more about him below.
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 is a big guy who’s become quite the popular pup with the Monster Milers. He’s currently in foster care through ACCT (the city open-intake shelter), but would rather be hanging out with his head on your lap. You can learn more about Ivan 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!
Doesn’t Jeep sound like it could be the name of a character on a season of the Real World that aired in the 90s? It definitely does. But that’s not important — what is important is that Jeep is also the name of this week’s adoptable running dog, a sweet three-year-old Lab who would love to tackle trails with you (and maybe take a dip or two in a few trailside creeks). Learn more about him below!
