The Dandie Dinmont Terrier originates on the border of Scotland and England and was originally used to hunt otters and badgers. Their coat is a mixture of soft and hard hair of medium length coming in pepper (all shades of grey and silver) or mustard (all shades of brown and fawn). The puppies are much darker than adults.
The Dandie Dinmont first appeared as a distinct terrier in the 18th century. They are dignified, but not so dignified they don't enjoy play and are also affectionate. They need a moderate walk or play session daily and some dig. Their coat needs combing twice a week.
Health concerns include intervertebral disk disease and glaucoma.
Fox Terriers come in Smooth and Wire coats and originate in England. They were used for vermin hunting and fox bolting. White should predominate (brindle, red or liver markings are objectionable).
Both Smooth and Wire coat Fox Terriers live to play, love to run and hunt and chase and are feisty. They may be scrappy with other dogs and may dig and bark. They need a vigorous game or walk every day and brushing to remove hair in smooth coats (who shed more than Wires) and coat combing two to three times weekly plus shaping every three months for the Wires.
Health concerns include lens luxation, cataracts, and Legg-Perthes (spontaneous degeneration of the head on the femur bone).
The Glen of Imaal Terrier comes from Ireland and was used as a farm dog, turnspit dog and vermin hunter. They have harsh, medium length coats in wheaton, blue or brindle.
These are inquisitive and courageous dogs, less excitable than most terriers, but nonetheless active. They are good natured, but some can be dog-aggressive. They need moderate exercise but also a good game every day. They are not good swimmers. Their coat needs weekly brushing and stripping a few times a year.
Health concerns include PRA and hip dysplasia.
