In the book Richard Liveth Yet, Richard III gives Rose a miniature dachshund called Hunter as a gift. Here is the ‘model’ for Hunter, who will feature more prominently in the sequel, which is in the process of being written at the moment. Hunter is small but feisty, a bit like Richard!
Hunter is a silver dapple miniature dachshund who is now three years old. He enjoys barking, yapping, eating, yapping, playing with leaves, yapping, attacking the post, yapping and rolling in poo (oh, and yapping!)
