Dandie Dinmont terrier Description
  The Dandie Dinmont Terrier is longer than it is tall. It has a solid head covered with a distinctive silky topknot. It has short and muscular legs. It has a large head, but still in good proportion to the body. The forehead is strong and there is a defined stop. Its nose is black. Its teeth meet in a sissor bite and is large for the size of the dog. Its ears are pendant and 3 to 4 inches long, wide near the head and tapering almost to a point. Its hazel eyes are brilliant and lively, but not protruding, with a gentle, wise expression. Its tail is 8 to 10 inches long and is carried with an upward curve. It is thick at the base and gets thicker for about 4 inches, then tapers. Its coat is unique. It is about 2 inches long and is a mixture of harsh and soft hair. The hair on the underside is softer than the upper body and the hair on the top of the head and upper ears is even softer and silkier.
