Note:If you have this breed, or know   anyone who does, please send a good profile photograph of the Dog (without humans in the background). We shall publish it on this page with credits. You can send it either by e-mail or post.

The Dandie Dinmont Terrier originates from the Borders of England and Scotland. There are two colours, mustard and pepper. The Dandie is long, flexible and low to the ground. He is made up of curves, has large, intelligent, dark eyes and a profuse topknot. His coat should be pencilled and feel crisp to the touch. He is intelligent, stubborn, and lovable. Bred originally to 'go to ground' he still has the instinct to hunt but is now mainly a companion dog. Ideal weight 18 - 24lbs, height 8-11 inches at the shoulder.
The Dandie is a happy, healthy little dog, but eye testing is recommended as there is an incidence of Glaucoma in the breed. Given the Dandie's long body, back problems can occur - though he is generally strong and flexible.
