Overview
The Manchester Terrier comes in two varieties: Standard and Toy. They were developed in England during the 19th century as vermin hunters. The Toy variety became popular during Queen Victorias reign. Today, the popularity of the Manchester Terrier has diminished although this breed makes a lovely companion and has retained their working capabilities
Character
Compact, agile, and small, the Manchester Terrier is alert and athletic. They are quite lively, vigilant, and very intelligent. This breed is elegant, graceful, and has a keen expression. They are well-mannered and more responsive than some of the other Terrier breeds.
Temperament
The Manchester Terrier is exceedingly loyal and a devoted friend to master and family. They display the true Terrier nature, are independent, and faithful. They do best in a home with older considerate children, and are not recommended in homes with other household pets. This breed has a tendency to be combative, headstrong, protective, and snappish. Manchester Terriers thrive on human companionship and are very demanding of attention from their family. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time or they will become bored, hyper, destructive, and bark excessively.
Care
This breed requires minimal grooming. Occasional brushing will minimize loose hair. It is important to check and clean the ears and teeth on a consistent basis. The Manchester Terrier is prone to cataracts, epilepsy, glaucoma, Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, patella luxation, and Von Willebrands disease. This breed prefers warm climates but should not be left in the sun for any length of time.
Coat
The Manchester Terrier has a short, dense, glossy, smooth, and tight fitting coat. The color of the coat is jet black with mahogany tan markings. This breed, depending on variety, is either an average shedder or sheds little to no hair.
Training
Early and intense socialization and obedience are absolutely crucial for the Manchester Terrier. They are eager to please and quick to learn. This breed does not respond to harsh or heavy-handed training methods or corrective discipline. They do best with thorough firmness, fairness, consistency, persistence, respect, and patience. The Manchester Terrier excels in agility and obedience trials.
Activity
This highly energetic breed needs an inordinate amount of vigorous exercise. They enjoy frequent securely leashed walks as well as safely fenced off lead play sessions where they are able to romp and run freely. It is imperative that this breed be supervised at all times as they are expert escape artists. The Manchester Terrier will do okay in an apartment dwelling provided that their excessive barking is controlled and they are given sufficient exercise, stimulation, and attention.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of 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.

In one word, wonderful. If you put the time in as a puppy you will never be more happy than with a manchester. We go outside in our yard, and watch him run, and play with our other dog, and children. He does not need to be on a leash all the time or inside a fence. He obeys very well because we started training when he was just a puppy, it was worth it, because he was worth it.

I have a manchester, he has never had odor problems. We bathe him once a week in johnsons oatmeal baby shampoo. We never use dog shampoo. Our vet told us that Manchesters can have dry skin, and to never use dog shampoo.

If your cat is aggressive towards other animals, then do not get another animal. The Manchester Terrier is a prey-driven dog and if the pup reacts in a negative way towards your cat acting negative to your dog, it could end badly.

It's unnecessary and will cause your Manchester Terrier to have problems balancing while running or relieving himself
