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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

No, the Manchester Terrier's ears do not need to be cropped. They are both naturally floppy or perked, depending on each dog. They can be taped to be perked if desired.

What is a Manchester Terrier like?



In one word, wonderful. If you put the time in as a puppy you will never be happier than with a Manchester Terrier. 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.


Hilarious! The lengths they will go to to get what they want will have you ROFL. Pepsi was my bff. She was every bit of the dog described in the Character and Temperament sections above. I was lucky enough to have found and adopted her at the local pound, where they had her labeled as a min-pin. Easy mistake to make, I guess. That being said, I would NEVER take her out of the house without a leash. Her prey drive was way too strong and easily over arched any training I provided. If you're considering adopting, warm up your throwing arm b/c these dogs love to play fetch and pretty much any other game you are down with, as long as you're involved. She was a bossy, sassy, smart, active and keen little girl who loved me with all her heart. RIP Pepsi 6/7/2019. I sure do miss her.

Anonymous asked:
I have a Manchester Terrer he seems to have a very high body odor. How can I treat this problem?



There really isn't much you can do for a dog's odor. Some dogs have high odors on their own and some have no smell. You can't really help that.


Take your Manchester Terrier to a vet! Excessive body odor isn't normal and has many causes ranging from simple external parasites easily taken care of by a few medicated topical/shampoo treatments to an indicator of serious internal medical problems.


Does he need his anal glands drained?


Depends on the dog. Of the five Manchester’s i’ve had all the males needed their anal glands done, but not the females.

Anonymous asked:
Will a Manchester Terrier get along with my cat of 6 years who is very independent and jealous of any other animal who comes to visit?



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, it could end badly.

Anonymous That will not end well. This breed is all prey drive, with a heaping side of 'jealous'.
