Dozer The Goldendoodle Joins Maryland Half Marathon

(YouTube Link)

Dozer the goldendoodle somehow escaped from his yard in Fulton, Maryland. What did he decide to do with his newfound freedom? He joined in the Maryland Half Marathon and ran approximately 7 miles of the race on his own. When he stopped for water at rest stations people assumed he was running with his owner. After crossing the finish line he made his own way home. He has since received a medal from race organizers and has his own runner’s page on the Maryland Half Marathon website where he has raised $14,000 for the UM Greenebaum Cancer Center. He also has a Facebook fan page with more than 1500 fans!
