This week’s adoptable running dog, Tre, was surrendered to the shelter when his owner became too ill to care for him — but shelter life didn’t get him down! This guy, currently in foster care with the Monster Milers, loves other dogs, people, AND running. So, basically, he’s perfect. Learn more about him below.

Name: Tre

Age: 6 years

Weight: 60 pounds

Breed: Pit bull-terrier mix

Running style: Tre has been described by his foster parents as an “AWESOME RUNNER!!!” He really loves to run and clearly gets a lot of joy from it. Depending on your pace, he might go out a little bit fast to start, but he will slow down and run consistently as long as you want to run. He has a lot of stamina and has the potential to be your running buddy for longer distances.

Why Tre is awesome: Tre gives you the best of both worlds: He loves to run, but will also settle down and is content to snuggle and snooze at home. He’s also really smart. He learned “lie down” in about 15 minutes and has made tremendous progress in a short amount of time walking better on his leash. Tre loves other dogs and loves people. He’s appropriate around kids and isn’t fazed by their sudden bursts of energy or size. Bonus: He’s house-trained and crate-trained. See? We warned you you’d want to take him home.

If you’re interested in adopting Tre, you can fill out your application here or email the Monster Milers here for more information. 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
