This week’s adoptable running dog, Priscilla, is currently on maternity leave from running, but she’ll be back at it in no time. Learn more about this sweet pooch below.

Name: Priscilla

Age: 3 to 5 years old

Breed: Labrador-Retriever Mix

Size: 60 pounds

Running style: Priscilla is currently on maternity leave from running, as her body needs time to recover from giving birth. But she’s an energetic lab mix that we are sure will one day love to be someone’s running buddy. Do you love running the trails around Philly? Priscilla would make a great partner: labs love to run, hike and swim!

Why Priscilla is awesome: Priscilla is certainly starting to enjoy life while living at Street Tails Animal Rescue! Seeing her delight as she explores the neighborhood sights and sounds is simply heart-warming and provides for a nice, leisurely summer stroll. She behaves like a lady both on and off leash and is treat motivated, so she will likely learn basic commands quickly. Priscilla is shy at first, but once she gets a feel for you, she’s incredibly sweet and gentle. She has a lot of love to give and loves being with humans, whether it’s while walking, cuddling, or getting brushed.  Watching her learn how to hug and receive love is adorable — she just pushes herself as close to you as possible. Whoever adopts this gentle lady is in for a lifetime of love and fun adventures.

We work with The Monster Milers 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, and they also just launched their first-of-it’s-kind Adopt a Running Buddy foster program. 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 or foster parent.
