Dandie Dinmont Terrier breed statistics

This 18 – 24 pound cutie, originally bred as a vermin hunter, is characterized by the poof of hair atop his head, curved tail, and soulful eyes. Like the Dachshund, he was bred to “go to ground” after badger and the like, and, as such, has a long, low body. This non-shedding breed has a big-dog personality. Confident, smart, and independent, the Dandie Dinmont is affectionate toward his family but reserved with strangers and would do well in both urban and rural settings.
