It was May when I had a phone call from friends in France who have Otterhounds, to say they had been told of an Otterhound on ‘death-row’ in a French Pound. They gave me details of a web-site run by Evelyn Gorrill, an English lady in France and sure enough, the photo was definitely an Otterhound, named Dede.
