Dandie Dinmont Terrier

Dandie Dinmont Terrier


Height: 8-11 inches

Weight: 18-24 lbs.

Life Span: 14-15 yrs.

Breed Group: Terriers

Overview
The properly socialized and trained Dandie Dinmont is a delightful dog. It can be protective of its property, wary of strangers, dominant, and independent, but also gentle if treated kindly and with respect.

It is very important to start obedience training and to socialize this dog with adults, children, and other animals at an early age.

Appearance
The Dandie Dinmont's coat, a mixture of coarse and soft hair with a crisp texture, is about two inches long.

Its color is pepper or mustard. The head and the soft, silky topknot on the head may be creamy white. The rich, dark hazel eyes are large, round, and bright.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Dandie Dinmonts need to be brushed and combed two to three times a week and trimmed every three months.

Vigorous exercise will reduce this dog's tendency to dig holes and bark excessively.

Origins
The Dandie Dinmont was developed in England in the 17th century to hunt badgers, foxes, rats, and weasels. In the 19th century it was named Dandie Dinmont after a country gentleman in Sir Walter Scott's 1815 novel Guy Mannering.

Dinmont, who lived on the border between England and Scotland, kept six of these playful, affectionate terriers on his farm.

This breed has been popular with gypsies as well as aristocracy at various times in its history.

Breed-related health concerns: hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, intervertebral disc protrusion, ear infections, lymphoma.
