Manchester Terrier Puppies
Description: The Manchester Terriers were registered as separate breeds until 1959 when they became a single breed with the Toy Manchester Terrier. Now they have two varieties, the Toy and the Standard. The Toy is an exact model replica of the Standard. This breed is thought to be a contributing progenitor to several other breeds. Both have cropped erect ears or naturally drop ears. They have hardly a stop at all on the face, and come in colors of black and tan. They have the usual Doberman markings. Manchester Terriers are a true terrier: inquisitive, alert and keen to investigate and look into everything. They have a long lifespan, a high activity level and a good watchdog bark. They are intelligent, one-person dogs. They can, however, be difficult to train and do not readily obey their owners. They cannot be trusted around small animals either, as they have a high prey drive. Despite this, Manchester Terriers are easy to care for, clean, alert and make excellent companions.
Other Names: Black and Tan Terrier, Gentleman's Terrier
Colors: Jet black
and rich tan or mahogany. Much the same markings as the Doberman, the tan or
mahogany markings generally appear on the muzzle, forelegs, on the chest, inside
the ears and on the underside of the tail. They also sometimes have tan "eyebrows".
Terriers are intelligent, personable, and high-strung. They have a lot of energy,
are alert and will use their bark to let their owners know what is going on.
Manchester Terriers are affectionate with family, wary of strangers and adaptable.
They can be possessive and also like to dig. They are not good with other small
pets, as they will probably hunt them. They are good with children, although
they are not as good with smaller children. Manchester Terriers are said to
have a short temper. They should be trained and socialized to avoid such aggressive

Care and Training:
Manchester Terriers are easy to care for as all they require is a daily brushing
or a rub down to give their coat a shine. Bathe only when necessary. Manchester
Terriers obtain their exercise in a small area, but do enjoy a good run. They
