Meet Cassie, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog

This pup is happy to pound the pavement or just chill on your lap.

This week’s adoptable running dog Cassie is all lovin’, as evidenced by the photo above. Find out more about this sweet young gal below.

Name: Cassie

Age: 1 year

Breed: Pit-bull mix

Size: 35 pounds

Background: Cassie’s owner became ill and could no longer care for her.

Running style: The weather has been a little too hot lately, so Cassie has been taking it slow and easy. When the temperature and humidity drop, though, she’ll be ready to go.

Why Cassie is awesome: Cassie’s smile will steal your heart. She is friendly and interested in people, especially if they happen to have a lap. What can we say, she sometimes forgets that she’s not a tiny puppy anymore. She’s very curious about the world, so sometimes she needs the occasional reminder about leash manners — but with a smile like that, who cares? If you have other pets, note: She’s lived with a cat and seems to like other dogs.

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
