It's an unusual addition to the Asheville Humane Society that just doesn't come around often. If you're looking for a new pet, Dexter may be the perfect addition to your family.
Dexter the pot belly pig managed to break out of his fence and was viciously attacked by dogs. There was a chance he wouldn't make it, but vets wouldn't give up and neither would Dexter. A month later he's rebounded, recuperated and ready for a new home. He is 8 months old and is even potty trained.
The Asheville Humane Society is having an after Thanksgiving special of 50 to 75 percent off adoption fees.
Watch Dexter win over the heart of News 13's Russ Bowen in this raw news clip.
