European readers are more likely to recognize this canine character, It's Obelix's trusty terrier Dogmatix (AKA Idefix) from the Asterix and Obelix comics. I've never read the comics, but I'm familiar with some of the characters, and instantly recognized this little guy. Builder grubaluk perfectly captures his character in this highly pose-able MOC.
Being an American growing up in the middle of nowhere, I had no exposure to Astérix & Obélix, and to be honest, I have no idea who these characters are. I mean, I saw this MOC by vitreolum I though "cool, Astérix & Obélix". Then I realized, I have no idea who is who. Then I realized I always assumed that was their names, but as far as I knew, it could be their favorite food, or anything else, I had no idea. What I do know is these are awesome character builds, the rest I'll have to spend some time researching.
