Dandie Dinmont Terrier |Scotland|

Dandie Dinmont Terrier |Scotland|

The long, low-slung Dandie Dinmont has lived around the border of Scotland and England for centuries, although their precise heritage is unknown. During the eighteenth century, they were kept by farmers for hunting all kinds of prey, including otters and badgers. They were originally known as Pepper and Mustard Terriers due to their coat colors. The dogs became known as Dandie Dinmonts in the early nineteenth century following the publication in 1815 of Sir Walter Scott’s novel Guy Mannering. A breeder named James Davidson lived near Scott, and Davidson’s terriers and others like them were named after a terrier-owning character in Scott’s novel. These are playful, loyal, and brave dogs. They can, however, be reserved with strangers and aggressive to other dogs.
