Meet Bon Bon, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog
This week’s adoptable running dog is named after dessert and loves pizza just as much as the next gal (photographic evidence below), making her a great pal for runs and Netflix binges alike. Learn more about her below.
Name: Bon Bon
Age: 3 years old
Breed: American Bulldog-Pit bull mix
Size: 60 pounds
Background: Bon Bon was found as a stray and was taken in by ACCT.
Running style: Bon Bon is a middle-of-the-pack runner who enjoys her runs at a moderate pace and distance. She could easily work her way into a variety of training plans and is a very well-behaved training partner.
Why Bon Bon is awesome: Bon Bon is not only a very enthusiastic runner, but she has great leash manners and barely pulls; the Monster Milers say she was a dream at the last event. She’s equally well-behaved on walks and enjoys cruising around parks and doing people/dog/bird/squirrel watching. When she’s not out and about, Bon Bon loves to play with the toys in her kennel and shower her people with lots of kisses. When she doesn’t have the attention of her wonderful volunteers, she’s very content to sit back and relax. With Bon Bon you get an active family member that can also easily settle down and cuddle!
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.
