Standard Size and Toy Size


The Manchester Terrier is a direct descendant of the
old Black and Tan Terrier, which dates back roughly 400
years in Britain.  Early Black and Tans were bred for rat
killing, and rabbit control, not as show dogs.  These rough
coated dogs were crossed out to various other breeds such
as to the Whippet, Italian Greyhound, and the Dachshund.
What has evolved is a longer legged, more graceful, short
smooth coated black dog with clear distinctive mahogany
markings, slighter in build, more agile and still capable
of coursing rabbits and dispatching rats.

Manchester puppies are adorable, alert, intelligent,
and soon become excellent companions and watchdogs with
tidy habits.  Shedding is average, grooming requirements
are modest, once a week being enough.  Manchesters are
generally friendly with other dogs and not aggressive nor
shy.  They are keenly observant, devoted, but discerning.
The correct ear styles for the Standard and the Toy
are explained in the Breed Standard, below.

Buying a Manchester Terrier puppy requires some
patience because they are quite rare, but worth the wait.
