Default Dandie Dinmont Terrier

Has anyone heard of this breed before?

I just randomly came across it when looking up small dog breeds. I have never heard of this breed before and I was surprised to find that it is actually a breed accepted by the AKC.

...and it has apparently been around for awhile.

Was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of the breed before or perhaps owns one/has seen on in person?

They look like and from what I've read, seem like, interesting dogs.

To those who have no clue what they are, here are some pictures of them:

I've put a few dogs in their pattern, but no I don't really see very many.

I've seen them at dog shows. The classes were usually very small. I've never seen one outside of a dog show setting though.

Strange Eh! So I am wondering if they are seen in shelters and dogs' homes or even Dandie Dinmot rescue shelters?

Interesting. I don't think they are a common dog to see in America. According to one person the breed is "rare" and can be hold to get ahold of and apparently there were only 98 registered in the UK last year.

Found a club for them: Welcome to the Dandie Dinmont Terrier Club

The comment on the AKC DD parent club web site is a pretty good explanation of why they're seldom found in rescue situations or pet homes.

Because there are usually less than three Dandie Dinmont Terrier puppies in each litter, Dandie breeding is not a lucrative source of income for backyard breeders and puppymills. As a result there are very few Dandies rescued.

Only 160 were registered with AKC last year!

Bigboy, check out the link that Ama added to her post. It gives the history in the first paragraph. Very interesting...
