Just some more pictures of Hootie, the Decker Terrier we met yesterday —

7 June 2012 Hootie, Decker Terrier

I’d only heard about this “giant rat terrier” after joining the Basenji Forums. I don’t know much about them other than they were created fairly recently with the help of some Basenjis in the 1970s that still appear rather prominently in some lines.

So I have been curious to meet one.

Bowpi and Hootie

Bowpi didn’t react to Hootie as she normally does when meeting other Basenjis. He was sturdy, dense, bulked up with a weight in the lower 30 pounds or so. Quite friendly, with just a hint of impishness to his demeanor that seemed so familiar…

Tails ahoy

Prowling pair
