Character
The Toy Manchester Terrier possesses an alert and bright expression. They are hardy and sturdy, het elegant and sleek. This breed is agile, athletic, discerning, and observant.
Temperament
A lively, high-spirited breed, the Toy Manchester Terrier is also faithful and protective. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time and are very demanding when wanting attention. If they become bored or lonely they will become destructive and bark incessantly. Toy Manchester Terrier's do not do well in homes with dogs or other household pets. They do will with older, considerate children.
Care
Occasional brushing with a firm bristle brush is recommended for the Toy Manchester Terrier. Bathing should be done when necessary. It is important to regularly clean the ears. The breed is prone to such health issues as Von Willebrand's disease and glaucoma.
Coat
The coat of the Toy Manchester Terrier is glossy, short, smooth, and dense.
Training
The Toy Manchester Terrier requires a dominant owner. Intense early socialization and obedience is a must. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, and consistency.
Activity
The Toy Manchester Terrier breed will do okay in an apartment provided they are sufficiently exercised. They thrive on being with their family and enjoy securely leashed walks and free-play in a securely fenced yard. The Toy Manchester Terrier excels in agility and obedience.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Toy Manchester Terrier puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

My Manchester is almost 12 years old and in great health. She socializes at her pet sitters house and prefers large dogs. I want to get another dog and it needs to be small. Would like another Manchester but worried my 12 year old will not take to the new addition. Any advise when adding a dog to our family for my aloof Manchester?

First things first, understand that your dog has lived 12 years alone in her own home. She is used to being the only dog. So you must give her time and space when you bring a new puppy into the mix. The dog and pup should be separated unless 100% supervised (10 minute intervals). You need to allow your older dog to get used to the smell of another dog in her home before allowing them to socialize together. Once you contact a breeder, have him/her give you a blanket with the puppies scent on it a week before you bring the puppy home so your dog can start to get used to the scent early.

Yes, my Toy Manchester Terrier has a nice thin long tail, like a whippet. The tip is slim like a fine paint brush. They do NOT wag it like a whippet, so they do NOT hit you with their tail.

Manchester Terriers are long living dogs, I have known some that lived to 18 and 19 years old. Mid to high teens is quite common.
