I have Dandie Dinmont Terrier puppies for sale! See My Profile
Incredibly difficult to find and having fallen in love with this whimsical breed I decided to breed Dandies only a couple of times in a small effort to help the breed survive. I'm also a horse owner, breeder and work with rescue horses. Dogs have always been a part of my life but none have compared to the characteristics Dandies offer. This is my last litter of AKC registered puppies to be considered for adoption.

Anonymous asked:
Are they prone to health issues like cushings or cherry eye?



Due to the breed's elongated body, there can be back issues within the breed specifically with intervertebral discs in the dog's backs. These discs can sometimes "slip" resulting in spinal disc herniation. Following work by the breed clubs to ensure that any reoccurring health issues are dealt with, there are no especially common conditions affecting the Dandie Dinmont Terrier. However, minor issues affecting the breed can include hypothyroidism, primary closed angle glaucoma and Cushing's syndrome. The Dandie is also at slightly higher risk of canine cancer than average.


Dandies that have sufficient exercise rather than being kept mainly in the home are less prone to suffer with back problems. Exercise that keeps the back muscles in good condition is essential.

Dandie Dinmont Terriers are generally a healthy breed. Some are prone to glaucoma and epilepsy. Hypothyroidism can occur when the dog is older. Do not overfeed, as an overweight dog can have back problems.

Anonymous asked:
Are Dandi Dinmont Terrier's yappy dogs?



Not generally, but every dog can be if they are not trained properly.


My Dandie talks to me. She sometimes barks but not often. Only if she is letting me know something is wrong. She also has a low growl when she does not like someone or something. She does "woo-woo-woo". She has a kill scream when she wants to kill a rodent. Hunting and tracking is a must do for the Dandie. Make sure you join a Hunting or Ratting Club (non-kill type) or a digging club would also be perfect.


They are the most wonderful breed For 40 years I have had 2 dandies Each lived to just shy of 20 years old each Best family pet Gentle loving and kind


I researched the breed before finding a puppy. My pepper Dandie, Dee Dee is my service dog who goes everywhere with my husband and i. We started training her when she came to us at 5 months. She is now 18 months old and is very smart. They are highly intelligent and adapt to their owner. Everywhere we go, we promote her breed and advocate for Service Dogs. She is a wonderful representative of her breed and we are very lucky to have been picked to have one. There were only around 300 puppies born Worldwide in 2017 and only around 1,000 in the US. Please do your research as this breed is on the vulnerable breed list. Sandy and Alex Byrd
