Meet KB, This Week’s Adoptable Running Dog

This week's running dog will also happily head to happy hour with you (as long as there's dog-friendly seating) during the dog days of summer.

This week’s adoptable dog is named after Ikea’s Swedish cinnamon rolls — so in case you hadn’t already figured it out, she’s pretty sweet. And bonus: She’s a good runner. (Just, like most of us, not so much in 90-degree weather). Learn more about her below!

Name: Kanelbullar (Swedish cinnamon rolls from Ikea), we call her KB for short

Age: 1 to 3 years

Breed: Pit mix

Size: 47 pounds

Background: KB was surrendered to Women’s Humane Society by her family.

Running style: KB is a great runner, when we aren’t in a heat wave! In cooler temperatures, she can keep a nine to 10-minute pace and would make a great middle-distance running buddy.  She is a stocky lady and has the cutest little hind-leg waddle that will make you smile the whole time you’re running.

Why KB could be the right dog for you: KB is an active girl who would love to be someone’s workout buddy, but she’s also a very well-behaved date and loves hanging out in park or at a dog-friendly restaurant. KB is a social dog who prefers to be with her friends, and she makes it easy to be with her; she is a a quiet, well-mannered girl who doesn’t bark much, doesn’t excitedly jump up, and is housebroken.

If you’re interested in adopting KB, you can find her at Street Tails Animal Rescue in Northern Liberties. You can fill out an adoption application here, or contact them by phone (267-761-9434) or email. 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.
