Dandie Dinmont terrier, native to England, originated in the 17th century. One of the most quaint pet dogs. While many pets are named after the place where they were raised or where they were bred, the Dandy Dinmunger dog was named after a character in a famous writer Sir Walter Scott's work. As early as the 1700s, the Dandie Dinmont terrier, bred on the border between Scotland and England, was renowned for its ability to prey on otters and badgers, making it a unique breed. It is believed to be the result of a cross between a Scottish terrier and a Skye terrier.
