News Puppy rescued from Bronx garbage bin is seeking a forever home By Alison Fox email@example.com March 29, 2016 5:34 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email Dexter was rescued from a Bronx garbage bin when he was just a puppy; now he’s rebounded and is ready for a new home. The 1-year-old pup was found at about 1 p.m. on April 5, 2015, inside a trash can at the corner of East 210th Street and Bainbridge Avenue, police said. The terrier mix was malnourished and in need of some love and care.

He's also learning potty training, like any good high-energy pup. Photo Credit: ASPCA / Stacey Axelrod "Dexter is like a big puppy! He is very playful and his extroverted nature has made him a great helper dog for some of our residents who are not used to being around many other dogs," Victoria Wells, the senior manager for ASPCA Behavior and Training, said in a statement. "He particularly enjoys his play sessions with other pups, but is equally happy settling down inside with a good chew toy. He is also eager to learn new tricks for a yummy treat."

Anyone interested in adopting Dexter should call the ASPCA's Adoption Center at 212-876-7700, ext. 4120.
