terrier can stand up to 12 inches at the shoulder and weighs up to 12 lbs.
He is sleek and smooth coated with naturally erect ears. His coat is
glossy black with tan mahogany markings. His small size and lack of heavy
protective fur make him sensitive to extremes of heat and cold. An
easy-care dog whose grooming needs are minimal, the Toy Manchester Terrier
today is a beloved companion and good watchdog.
As a true terrier, the Toy Manchester
Terrier is lively, inquisitive, alert and curious. Devoted and faithful to
his owner, the Toy Manchester Terrier tends to be a one-person dog. He
loves to be with his people and does not like living in a kennel. He
enjoys the comforts of home!
Despite his small size, the Toy Manchester
Terrier has lots of energy and needs regular exercise. He can live in an
apartment if he has daily walks. As an intelligent dog and a fast learner,
he will benefit from early obedience training. He should also be socialized
as a puppy to other animals or he may become overly aggressive with other
pets. Like many smaller dogs, he may be intolerant of very young children.
