Dandie Dinmont Terriers are difficult to breed. Each breeding must be carefully planned to protect health, type, and soundness. Thankfully, since the average Dandie litter is around three puppies, puppymills and backyard breeders find that Dandies are not ‘worth the trouble’ to breed.
Although there are very few Dandies appearing in shelters, there is a need for Dandie rescue groups. Dandie rescue organizations are ready at a moments’ notice to foster Dandies who have met with hard times, end up in a shelter or are in need of a new home.
