Diva's eight and would be game to run with you by disposition, however, she has enough arthritis that it would be unwise for her health.
And this is something to keep in mind with this breed. Dogs with drive will not cry, "Uncle!" We have to be wise in how much we allow them to exert themselves.
I concur with MeadowCat's age 2-5 suggestion.
And I'd choose a dog on the smaller end of the breed standard.
Please also keep in mind that, just as is true with humans, a dog that has not been running habitually will need to be eased into condition.
It should be good to be Dog.
