Meet Bruno, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog

Bruno is up for adoption at PAWS.

Bruno is up for adoption at PAWS.

Having a rough Friday? Take a moment and look at the face of the week’s adoptable running dog, Bruno. Feel better? Thought so. This guy, who’s currently hanging out at PAWS, is an enthusiastic, steady-paced pup who could just be your new favorite spring-training partner. Learn more about him below.

Name: Bruno

Age: 2-4 years

Breed: Pit bull mix

Size: 50 pounds

Background: Bruno was found as a stray.

Running style: Bruno keeps a very steady pace and goes as fast or as leisurely as you like. He hardly ever makes sudden stops and is very content to follow your lead.

Why Bruno could be the right dog for you: Bruno is very well behaved and is a complete gentleman with wonderful leash manners. He enjoys the company of dogs who share his well-mannered style, though he probably would not be a good housemate to a cat. But he loves kids (although little ones might be overwhelmed by his enthusiasm).

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.
