Dandie Dinmont Terrier: This is one of the very rarest breeds in the United States and is almost extinct in its native UK. Why that is, I don't know, for this is one adorable dog. The breed is ranked 170 out of 175 in AKC registrations.
Dandie Dinmont terrier This short-statured dog was originally bred to be a friend to farmers. The terrier was used to hunt otters and badgers, as well as vermin around farms including skunks and weasels. But while it has the typical tenacity of terriers, it generally has a more calm personality than similar breeds. Its domed head and distinctive poof of hair make it unique among terriers.
