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!

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.

Meet George, This Week’s Insanely Cute Adoptable Running Puppy

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.

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?
