Manchester Terrier  


The sleek and alert Manchester Terrier originated in England is a descendant of the oldest known terrier breed, the Black and Tan Terrier. As with many other terriers, their primary occupation was chasing and eradicating vermin on farms. They still retain these instincts and are ready and willing to discourage rodents from setting up shop in your cupboards or back yard. They are loyal and interactive breed, that benefits greatly from consistent training. Though not particularly high strung, they are enthusiastic and dedicated watchdogs who are happy to alert you to anything suspicious. Their short coat requires little maintenance and they even tend to groom themselves.
