Dandie Dinmont Terrier
The Dandie Dinmont, also known as Dandie, is a natural born hunter originating in the 1700s from the England and Scotland border area. They are independent, vigilant, and sensitive yet a little stubborn so may be difficult to train without being consistent and firm.
They are affectionate, happy, bold, and brave making great companions that get along with other dogs, children over ten, and cats if raised with them but may harm small pets like hamsters due to being bred for hunting vermin. Dandies need to be walked on a daily basis and brushed regularly as they do not shed. They can make good watchdogs but may continue to bark so proper training is a must with them.
