Meet Bingo and Butter, This Week’s Adoptable Walking Dogs 

Bingo and Butter.

This week, we’ve got not one, but TWO adoptable pups for you guys to stare at with hearts in your eyes. These two, Bingo and Butter, come as a pair, and if you’re lacking in motivation to get off the couch and get moving — especially when it feels like a freakin’ sauna outside — these two walking lovers may give you just the extra push you need (in the form of sad puppy eyes) to lace up your sneaks and head out for a walk. Learn more about them below.

Names:  Bingo and Butter

Age: Bingo (darker male) is 4-6 years, and Butter (lighter female) is 8-10 years.

Breed:  Beagle mix

Size: 25 pounds each

Background: These two great dogs were surrendered by their owner, who thought they were “too old.”

Running style: Bingo and Butter are walkers not runners, but everyone needs cooldown buddies!

Why Bingo and Butter could be right for you: Both Bingo and Butter are a little shy and skittish in the city noise. They had been outdoor-only dogs, so they really need love and attention. It would be great if they could be adopted together (or have a doggie sibling to show them the ropes of family life). A home without young children would be best, but they probably could learn to live with cats. If you are patient and kind, these two will blossom in your care.

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.
