Dandie Dinmont Terrier
A Small, Fearless Delightful Terrier


The Dandie Dinmont is one of the oldest British terrier
breeds originating in the Northumberland region, during the
1700s.  Exact details of its ancestors are not known, but it is
thought that the local native terriers were used, and some
believe that the Otterhound may also have been introduced.
They had local names like the Pepper or Mustard terrier.
In 1814, Sir Walter Scott wrote a novel, "Guy Mannering"
in which these dogs were featured.  They were bred by a
farmer named Dandie Dinmont.  The name became
attached to the little dogs.  In 1875, some fanciers
got together and formed a breed club.

The Dandie Dinmont was aptly described by Sir Walter
Scott as a "big little dog."  It differs from most terriers in
that, instead of straight lines and angles, it is comprised of
gentle curves and graceful arches.  It comes in two colors,
pepper and mustard, but with many different shadings, the
intermediate shades being the preferred ones.

Dandie Dinmont Terriers are intelligent, determined,
reserved with strangers and dignified.  Many still have
working instincts and the true terrier temperament.  They
are ready to take on all vermin.  They are a very loving and
affectionate breed and prefer human companionships.  They
are very good with children.  A smaller quarters is suitable,
with daily exercise needs being about three walks each day.
They shed a little bit, requiring some grooming about three
times per week.  Stripping is best for the coat.  The topknot
should be shampooed, brushed and combed from time to time
to maintain its eye catching distinctive appearance.  This
breed makes a delightful friendly family pet.
