Meet Bingo, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog

This week’s adoptable running dog is really more of a walker, and he looks darn good doin’ it. Learn more about Bingo below.

Name: Bingo

Ages: 2 to 4 years

Breed: Miniature Schnauzer mix

Size: 25 pounds

Running style: Bingo may not be a full-fledged runner, but he moves pretty quickly on his short legs. He always picks up his pace when runners pass by.

Why Bingo could be the right dog for you: Are you a Star Wars fan? Bingo could be part Wookie! He has a great personality and always seems ready for action. One thing to note: He should be the only pet in his new home.

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. Find out more about how to get started with those processes here
