Meet Moto, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog

This week’s adoptable running dog, currently being fostered through ACCT Philly, is as cute as he is sweet, and the guy runs in his sleep — seriously! You can learn more about Moto below. 

Name: Moto

Age: 1 to 2 years

Breed: Pit bull mix

Running style: Moto loves going for walks around the neighborhood, and would make an excellent running buddy. And while he loves getting out and about and playing with toys (especially furry ones that squeak), he’s equally happy to curl up on the sofa and snuggle with you. (He makes an excellent post-run nap buddy.) He’s also a vivid dreamer, and will often bark and “run” (his legs twitch adorably) in his sleep.

What makes Moto Awesome: Moto is a goofy pit mix who loves to socialize! He has a sweet temperament, and loves everyone he meets. He’s also completely house-trained and is an excellent leash-walker, but sometimes he can get a little excited when saying hello to people or dogs on the street. He knows the commands “sit,” “lay down,” “stay,” and “leave it.” He also knows to sit at street corners when asked to do so and will wait to eat something until you tell him that he is allowed — and he will do almost anything for a carrot (his favorite snack). If you are looking for a fun-loving, friendly, and playful dog, then Moto is the guy for you!

Moto is in foster care through Animal Care and Control Team (ACCT Philly). To inquire about adopting Moto, please contact Moto’s foster mom, Morgan, directly at 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
