Dandie Dinmont Terrier

Developed on the border of England and Scotland in the 1700s to hunt otter and badger, the Dandie Dinmont Terrier is best known today for his companionship. This breed is an excellent guard dog but may be aggressive with other dogs and animals. Gentle, affectionate and loyal, the Dandie is particularly good with children. Professional trimming or stripping is necessary to maintain the rough double coat.
