This week’s adoptable running dog, Waffles, is small but mighty. He’s got lots of energy and the Monster Milers think he’s got potential to become a great running partner. Learn more about him below.

Name: Waffles

Age: 3 years

Breed: Schipperke/Miniature Pinscher mix

Weight: 13 pounds

Background: Waffles was surrendered by his owner, who could no longer care for him.

Running style: Don’t let his size fool you: Waffles may be small, but he has so much enthusiasm and energy that he has the potential to be a great little runner.

Why Waffles is awesome: Put on your dancing shoes, because Waffles has some great moves! This sweet, playful boy loves to get up on two legs and dance, and knows how to work the room to get treats. Waffles is a curious pup who is eager to sniff and explore the world, although he can be a little shy around some men. This happy, loving boy would make a great addition to any home!

If you’re interested in adopting Waffles, you can fill out an application at or contact Street Tails Animal Rescue by phone at 267-761-9434 email them 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
