Toy Manchester Terrier Puppies
Description: The Toy Manchester Terriers (or English Toy Terrier) were registered as separate breeds until 1959 when they became a single breed with the Manchester Terrier with two varieties, the Toy and the Standard. It should be noted that the Toy Manchester may not have their ears cropped as their larger counterparts can. They are a Toy breed with definite terrier characteristics which make them devoted pets who are faithful to their owners. The Toy Manchester Terrier enjoys the comforts of home and should be given a soft bed to lay down in. 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. Toy Manchester Terriers are a true terrier: inquisitive, alert and keen to investigate and look into everything. Although, they are said to be less active than the normal terrier. They have a long lifespan, a moderate 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.
