I don’t really see any point in telling you more about Autumn, because I feel like you’ve probably already jumped out of your desk chair to go pick her up after seeing her stopping and smelling the flowers like the cutest creature on earth in the photo above. Am I right? Thought so. (But just in case, you can learn more about her below.)

Name: Autumn

Age: 1 to 2 years

Breed: Pit bull/Terrier mix

Size: 60 pounds

Background: Autumn was surrendered when her owner became ill.

Running style: Autumn is an enthusiastic runner but takes time to explore the world around her. With a little bit of focus, she could become a really great running partner.

Why Autumn is awesome: Autumn is an adorable, cuddly, bouncy pittie. Once she gets to know you, she enjoys cuddles, too. Autumn is working on basic training in the shelter, and she should continue that in her forever home. She is good with some other dogs, but isn’t used to cats. She is a big girl and doesn’t know her own strength, so she’d be best with older children.

You can find out more about Autumn (and other adoptable animals) here. If you are interested in adopting her, you can email PAWS at, call them at 215-298-9680, ext. 16 or fill out an application here. Her animal ID is A26870838. 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
