I wouldn't worry about it after 12 games.
If you want to worry about someone who has lost the ability to walk you may want to look at Austin Kearns who has a 1 BB for the season.
Kearns is going to be ok. .340/.353/.700 4 HR 6 2Bs 35 Total Bases
Dunn's numbers after 12 games look great as well. .310/.415/.833 35 Total Bases
As far as worrying about Dunn, I would be more worried that he only has 1 double so far, but the other things he does well, get on base and hit 4 base hits, more than make up for that.
