So you’re looking to adopt an Manchester Terrier (Toy), or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Manchesters combine the streamlined grace of a small coursing hound and the instincts of a fearless rat terrier. These racy little dogs come in two size varieties: Toy (not exceeding 12 pounds) and Standard (not exceeding 22 pounds). All Manchesters are similar in temperament, body type and athletic ability despite differences in size. They’re easily recognized by a tight coat of rich mahogany tan and jet black. The head is long and wedge-shaped; tan spots above each eye point up a watchful expression. Manchesters can motor, running with good reach in front and propulsive rear drive powered by a muscular caboose. The Manchester Terrier is named after the English city where much of the breed’s early development took place. Sleek, racy dogs who possess a terrier’s ratting instinct and the graceful contours of coursing hounds, Manchesters are spirited, bright, and athletic. They combine the streamlined grace of a coursing hound and the instincts of a fearless Rat Terrier. These racy dogs come in two size varieties: Toy (not exceeding 12 pounds) and Standard (not exceeding 22 pounds).”
