Our list of dogs changes every day. New dogs get added, others get adopted, and, like us, others may just need to take some time off from running. Below are a handful of our favorite RuffTail Runners. You can also follow the links at the bottom of the page to see an up-to-date list of dogs.



Yes, that’s his name! B stands for the biggest, beefiest, more beautifully behaved boy! This 80-pound sweetheart loves treats and people. He has fantastic manners in public and would love to show his “roll over” skills to anyone who will watch. B is an Pink Walker.


Quin is a friendly, wiggly girl who has lots of energy to burn. She would be a great jogging partner for someone who enjoys the quiet of the ballfields like she does. Quin has already made her TV debut with Austin Pets Alive!, so who knows–you might get recognized when out with her! Quin is an Orange Runner.


Siri is a pretty, shy girl who is learning to come out of her shell while out the shelter. She’s been known to give sweet kisses to her handler. Siri enjoys runs around the ballfields, and we hope she’ll soon have enough confidence to go on jogs on the trail! Siri is an Orange Runner.


Monty is a smart, well-behaved boy who has the most perfect trail manners (and eye contact!) He’s a TOP dog, which means he’s learning to master the same basic skills as a service dog. When he’s got down time from his training schedule, Monty enjoys light jogs around Town Lake. Monty is a Blue Runner.


Emily was built for running. She can go for miles and miles without tiring! Not only is she athletic, but Emily is also super smart. She’s mastered Canine Good Citizen training, which means she has the same basic skills as a service dog. We don’t think there’s anything this talented girl CAN’T do! Emily is a Blue Runner.



Chewy can’t decide what he enjoys more–walking or fetching! This friendly boy can always be found with a tennis ball in his mouth. Even though he’s a senior, Chewy still has a lot of youthful energy and will play fetch all day if you let him. On the trail, he’s a well-mannered and adventurous guy. Chewy is a Blue Walker.
