Meet this week’s Diamond, Dexter (ID 599097). This high-energy, 2.5-year-old boy is just looking for a loving playmate to spend his days with. At 62lbs, Dexter doesn’t quite know his size yet and tends to be a bull in a china shop – running over smaller dogs and knocking over children. But, he is a total love who doesn’t have a destructive bone in his body.

Diamond in the Ruff - JR Dunn - Dexter

Dexter is super-smart, too! He is housebroken, whines at the door to go potty, and knows plenty of commands. His only area of improvement is that he pulls on the leash, but that can be easily fixed with a front-hooking harness. Dexter gets along with dogs, but unfortunately he is much to energetic and playful for cats.

Because he requires so much exercise, he has been finding it hard to find a home. But, if you’re an active family with a yard who loves to go on walks, Dexter is definitely the dog for you. Our friends at JR Dunn Jewelers have even sponsored his adoption fee, which gives you more free change to purchase your training harness, or even pay for a dog walker! This fella can’t get enough walks! Please stop by and ask to meet Dexter today.

About Diamond in the Ruff

Since 2016, longtime Humane Society of Broward County supporter J.R. Dunn Jewelers has been helping to create true love – by sponsoring pet adoptions so that more dogs and cats can find happy homes. The program is called Diamond in the Ruff, and who knows diamonds better than J.R. Dunn?

J.R. Dunn features a pet each week – yes, 52 pets every year – and underwrites the entire adoption fee for that dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Diamond in the Ruff is promoted through J.R. Dunn’s local radio spots and social media, and the HSBC will do its share of promotion as well.

What a fabulous way to put their money where their heart is, and to bring attention to all the amazing dogs and cats that are so ready to be loved. Furry little diamonds in the rough – just waiting for their “perfect setting!”

Be sure to visit J.R. Dunn’s facebook page each week  to see who the featured pet is and you might just find your next family member. Of course to meet the pet, contact the Humane Society of Broward County at 954-266-6839.
