"Portrait of a Canine Killer"

Films: Baxter (1989)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Haunted home

Height/Weight: That of an average terrier.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Most would scoff at the question of what a dog is thinking. But they'd be in for a surprise. Dogs can be quite intelligent when they want to be. Or in Baxter's case, too intelligent...

History: Baxter is a miniature Bull-Terrier who enjoys having active and young owners. He doesn't like his current owner for her sedentary nature, and has her killed so that he can be adopted by a young couple. All seems well until they have a kid of their own. Soon, Baxter is put under the care of a budding neo-Nazi...for all the good that implies...

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Baxter and the boy come into conflict due to the former refusing to kill on another’s terms, and the latter murdering his new puppies. The boy wins by telling him to heel so he can be stabbed.

Powers/Abilities: None

Weakness: Standard dog commands have a vice grip on his psyche.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-Don't let that adorable puppy face fool you. This is one sociopathic, horrid little hell-hound who believes that the weak must die and he get all the attention. It's only fitting his demise came from someone just as depraved as he, just as he was developing some sense of empathy.

Trivia: -The German title is "Bell mir das Lied vom Tod", which roughly translates to "The Bells of the Song of Death".

-Contrary to Baxter, most miniature Bullies are actually very friendly, and welcome people from all walks of life.

He'll warm your heart...over the coals.

Now, he's lost all subtlety and went wild.

Garfield's new nemesis didn't mess around.
Stare long enough into the abyss and it stares right back.

Don't even think about it, you psycho canid.
