Considering his size and his lack of depth perception, Dexter could be forgiven for being rather timid, particularly around adults and large dogs.
Yet the 11-pound miniature pinscher’s boldness outweighs any concerns he may have for himself, as when he ran into traffic, resulting in surgery in which vets had to remove an eye.
Dexter is looking for a more peaceful, and very playful, life. His favorite hobby is racing around the yard with squeaky toy, though the 6-year-old is mature enough to stay still for a while and learn a trick or two. He as as bright as min-pins come, even if he bumps into a door or two when misjudging distances.
He is available at the Arizona Humane Society Campus for Compassion, 1521 W. Dobbins Road, Phoenix. His adoption fee is $35 and includes his neuter surgery and vaccines. For more information, call 602-997-7585, ext. 1045.
