Dwarf Avocado pruning advice

Anyone have any advice on pruning this beast? It flowers and produces quite a few fruit, but the fruit dropped last year after it gets about pea sized. This year they got a little bit bigger but still dropped. It's been in the ground for 3 or 4 years. I'm guessing trimming it up will help. Saw a much thinner one in my neighborhood on a walk and it looked like it had some much more mature looking fruit.

M...any idea if this is a grafted tree? What variety? Avocados can be pruned to shape. As with all not leave "stumps". Prune back to the connecting branch (flush). Your tree looks like it is healthy.
