Meet Fievel, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog

fievel leadThis week’s adoptable running dog — a sprinting dog, to be a bit more specific — has tons of energy and, as a bonus, he has the cutest snaggletoothed smile you’ve ever seen. Learn more about him below.

Name: Fievel

Age: 3 years

Breed: Shih Tzu Mix

Size: 14 pounds

Running style: While the Monster Milers haven’t yet had a chance to test out the distance that Fievel is capable of, what they do know is that he has a need for speed! If you’re looking to do some sprints, then Fievel is your man: This little dude loves to move. So far, with his Miler friends, Fievel has done about a one-mile run followed up with some walking and loads of sprints.

Why Fievel is awesome: Fievel is a super-friendly and energetic little man with lots of personality. He’s adorably scruffy, yet soft, with the cutest snaggleteeth we’ve ever seen. In addition to sprinting around Northern Liberties, he loves chasing birds, getting belly rubs and lounging on the chairs outside of Street Tails while he waits for his forever 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
