Meet Friday, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog 

Friday, this week's adoptable running dog.

Friday, this week’s adoptable running dog.

This week’s adoptable running dog Friday, like his name, is the BEST: He loves to run, can easily match your pace and doesn’t pull on the leash, and he gets along with everyone, from others dogs to cats to kids. You can learn more about him below. Then go make Friday’s Friday and scoop him up from PAWS, why don’t ya?

Name: Friday

Age: 4 to 6 years

Breed: Boxer/Hound mix

Size: 40 pounds

Background: Friday was surrendered by an owner because someone in the house was allergic to him.

Running style: Friday is a great running partner, but he needs some time to stop and smell the roses (or anything else he encounters) along the route. He will match your pace and is well behaved on the leash.

Why Friday is awesome: Friday is energetic and curious but also happy to just sit next to you and watch the world go by. He gets along with other dogs, cats, and children. Friday is ready to be your pal every day of the week!

You can find out more about Friday (and other adoptable animals) here. If you are interested in adopting him, you can email PAWS at, call them at 215-298-9680, ext. 16 or fill out an application here. His animal ID is A33093958. 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
