Decker Terrier Information

The creation of the Decker Terrier began in 1970 with crossings of various breeds with the Rat Terrier. Some of the breeds used in creating the Decker included the Basenji and the Smooth Fox Terrier.

Decker Terriers show all true terrier characteristics when hunting in the field. They are extremely agile and fearless and will pursue rodents, deer, raccoon, hogs, squirrels and other game.

When not hunting, they make excellent family companions. They should not be considered to be only working terriers, but also family members. They crave human companionship and want to be near their family. These dogs should not be considered as an outdoor pet since they will not thrive without the human bond.

Decker Terriers should stand between 16 to 19 inches tall and weigh between 22 to 40 pounds. Their coats are short and smooth and should be tri-colored with white, black and tan. Some are also seen with tan sable and white colorings as well as white and apricot or lemon markings.
