Meet Dana, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog

danaName: Dana

Age: 1 to 2 years

Breed: Pit bull/terrier mix

Size: 35 pounds

Background: Dana was surrendered by her owner, who could no longer care for her.

Running style: Dana has lots of energy, so she is quick but easily distracted. She has good leash skill and is always ready to sniff out new adventures.

Why Dana is awesome: Dana is very much a puppy, so the world is an exciting place for her. She knows “sit” and “paw” and is working on “lay down.” She gets along with other dogs and loves meeting people.

We work with The Monster Miles each and every week to profile local running dogs waiting to be adopted. The Monster Milers are a group of runners who help shelter dogs burn off  energy and get much-needed exercise by taking them on runs around the city. If you’re not in the market for a pup right now, but would still love to help out homeless dogs, you can always become a Monster Miler volunteer. Find out more about how to get started with the volunteer process here.
