Tel Aviv is a city of dog lovers making it the perfect location to host Israel’s inaugural Doggie Run.

Canines of all shapes and sizes showed up for the two­ kilometer and 3.5k run. After well deserved water breaks, they and their owners hung around for the dog shows andtraining sessions afterward.

Pooches needing homes were also there, hoping to find new owners.
