AKC and UKC standards call for Standard Rat Terriers to stand over 13 inches and up to 18 inches. With the Decker bloodline having a very small gene pool, not all of the Decker line dogs will reach the higher height range of over 18 inches and not all of them will necessarily be the big, beefy dogs we now call Old Dominion Terriers. However, those with high percentage Decker bloodline carries the potential to produce true ODTs.
