If this photo of Clementine in a tutu doesn't brighten your Friday afternoon, nothing will.

Clementine takes a running break in the grass.

Here reporting for duty to brighten up Friday: Clementine, a current resident at Northern Liberties’s Street Tails Animal Rescue. This sweet gal is fan of running in the Wissahickon AND snuggling on the couch afterward. In other words, she’s the perfect significant other. Learn more about her below.

Name: Clementine

Age: 1 to 2 years

Breed: Pit bull mix

Size: 47 pounds

Background: Clementine was surrendered to ACCT when her owners no longer had time for her. She is a mama bear and has had at least one litter that we know of.

Running style: Clementine is a laid-back runner who gleefully trots along on her runs. It’s been pretty hot, as you all know, so the Monster Milers haven’t gotten a chance to completely gauge her running capabilities. They’re guessing she would be a great 5-to-10K training partner, though.

Why Clementine is awesome: Clementine is hands-down one of the sweetest dogs ever. She is the best combination of young and active mixed with chill. She knows “sit” and is very gentle-mannered, walks well on leash and loves children of all ages. She’s usually great with other dogs, but can be selective at times. She is the kind of gal who can go on adventures and enjoy a happy hour, but is equally happy to be home snuggled on the couch with her people. Her hobbies include car rides, walks, brunching, getting belly rubs and treats … all the treats!

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
