This week’s adoptable running dog Einstein comes by way of Street Tails Animal Rescue. He’s a great runner with lots of energy who just so happens to be deaf. Learn more about this sweet guy below.

Name: Einstein

Age: 1 to 2 years old

Breed: Pit bull mix

Size: 40 pounds

Running style: Einstein still has lots of puppy energy and behaves much better at the shelter and out in public when he’s gone for a run. He can easily handle three miles, and likely more if the heat and humidity are cooperating. With a little bit of training, he could easily become a great running partner.

Why Einstein is awesome: Einstein is the sweetest little guy, who loves to give lots of kisses; don’t bother asking him to stop because he is also deaf. His leash skills are a little rough for the first few blocks of a run, but after his energy starts to drain, he is really responsive and easy to train. He loves every human and every dog he passes, so he will do well in a variety of homes. He did great at the Monster Milers’ fun run with a lot of people, and has quickly become a Miler favorite.

If you’re interested in adopting Einstein, you can find him at Street Tails Animal Rescue in Northern Liberties. You can fill out an adoption application here, or contact them by phone (267-761-9434) or email. And for more awww-worthy photos, check out our previous adoptable running dogs here.

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.
