Meet Papi Chulo

The Dandie Dinmont is an affectionate and faithful companion, small in stature but big in spirit.  A great apartment dog, and very suitable for the less active.  Good with children if raised with them from a puppy.  The same applies to other household pets.  Suspicious of strangers, and protective of its family. Males may be aggressive to other males.  Needs regular brushing (several times a week).

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA ( ita408@comcast.net), and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
