2017 is a very important anniversary for the Dandie
Dinmont Terrier - the 175th birthday of the breed’s
“Founding Father” – Old Ginger, bred by Robert Pringle
and born at The Haining, Selkirk, Scottish Borders, on
June 4th 1842.
To mark this unique anniversary a
magnificent three day event has been created by a couple
of our longtime Dandie friends. This will be a
once in a lifetime chance to step back in time and
explore the very foundations of the breed we love today.
Every Dandie we have ever owned, now, or in the
future can trace its male line back to Old Ginger. His
importance cannot be underestimated. In his honour, our
one surviving breeding line has always been named the
“Old Ginger Line”.
