Dandie Dinmont terrier

a small dog with pendulous ears and a medium length, crisp coat in colors described as mustard (fawn to reddish brown) or pepper (dark bluish black to light silvery gray). The legs are short, with the front being shorter than the rear so the shoulder height is about 10 inches. The large head is accentuated by a fluffy topknot.
