Dandie Dinmont terrier
Dandie Dinmont terrier (dăn´dē dĬn´mŏnt), breed of hardy, long-bodied terrier developed in England and Scotland and first recorded as a distinct type in the very early 18th cent. It stands from 8 to 11 in. (20.3–27.9 cm) high at the shoulder and weighs from 18 to 24 lb (8.1–10.9 kg). The double coat consists of a mixture of soft and harsh hair about 2 in. (5.1 cm) long that gives it a crisp but not wiry texture and appearance. Its color may be pepper or mustard. Like most of the other terriers from England's northern Border districts, the Dandie Dinmont was bred to go to ground (i.e., go into an animal's den or underground shelter) in the hunting of such game as otters, badgers, and foxes. Today it is raised principally as a pet. See dog.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
