Breed Notes

The Dandie Dinmont has a will of his own and will sometimes obey a command reluctantly.  The Dandie's body coat is a mixture of hard and soft hairs giving the coat a crisp texture.   The intelligent, independent Dandie Dinmont Terrier has a determined friendly disposition, he makes a wonderful dog to live with, but if he ever encounters a mouse or a rat his hunting instincts come alive, so always keep your Dandie Dinmont Terrier on a leash or in a fenced-in, dog-safe area.

The Dandie Dinmont is intelligent, fond of children, and an excellent guard.

The breed got its name from a funny character in a book written in 1814 by Sir Walter Scott. The character's name was Dandie Dinmont.
