Becker is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 10-year-old, 18-pound male Miniature Pinscher.

Becker has the energy and agility of a much younger dog. He’s ideal for someone who wants a walking buddy. When you get back home afterward, he’ll be happy to have a couple treats then sit with you for some hugs. When Becker wants attention, he stands up on his hind legs and does a little dance. If you scratch the top of his head he closes his eyes and goes into a trance. Becker was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the FOCAS Program.

The $75 adoption fee for Becker includes medical exam, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log onto SDpets.org. Kennels and Cattery open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day but Tuesday.
