This week’s adoptable running dog, Belly, is 100 percent down to be your new BFF — whether you want to cuddle on the couch or hit the road for a walk or run, she’ll be right there with you. Belly does have a slight case of runner’s knee, so she needs a family who will be loving and attentive to her needs to keep her in tip-top shape.
Age: 1 to 2 years
Breed: Staffordshire mix
Size: 53 pounds
Background: Belly’s family had a change in job situation and did not have enough time to spend with her.
Running style: Belly is a recovering runner, who (like many of us) has had some knee issues. She needs an adopter who will be able to consult with their own vet, stick to a plan to protect her knees from further injury, and give her occasional pain medication.
Why Belly could be the right dog for you: Belly is a sweet, soulful pup who is always ready to walk and play with toys. But, she’s also content just to sit near you and be petted. She is easygoing and could live with other dogs, cats, or children.
If you are interested in adopting her, you can email PAWS at firstname.lastname@example.org, call them at 215-298-9680, ext. 16 or fill out an application here. And for more awww-worthy photos, check out our previous adoptable running dogs here.
