Dandie Dinmont Rescue League

People occasionally inquire whether there are any dandies available due to being in a “rescue” situation.  Fortunately, there are very few rescue dandies looking for a “forever home” .

However, when a dandie is in distress, it can count on the Dandie Rescue league to come to its aid.

Trying to find a reputable breeder? Not sure what questions to ask?  Check out the How To Find a Dandie and the Questions to Ask a Breeder pages.

Don't think contracts are necessary - think again. The purpose of a contract is to protect you, the dog and the person you are acquiring the dog from.  Check out our Contracts Page to see the types of items a contract should cover.

What Else Is Happening At Montizard?

We have a few alpacas and their “job” is to give our Anatolian Shepherds something to do.   The Anatolians protect the dandies, too.  To see what a “real” dog looks like - visit

Otterhounds are big dogs with a rough coat and a classic shaggy face. They have bushy eyebrows and a wide head. And a beard especially made for holding the water they drink!!!

The most common color is black and tan, but they can be found sporting a variety of different color combinations.

For centuries, Otterhounds were bred to be pack animals and this has resulted in a good-natured dog that doesn't look for trouble.

Their feet are webbed for swimming. A naturally excellent swimmer, these dogs can swim for miles and enjoy spending time in the outdoors.
