Living Area: A large country mansion isn't required to provide the Manchester Toy Terrier with a happy home. They are quite happy to settle for an apartment life, or a busy suburban environment. The dog has a lot of energy, but it is quite content to let it off indoors. For that reason alone, you might want to think about protecting any valuable ornaments dotted around the house. It can be quite a destructive pet if denied attention, and when combined with some amazing agility, the Toy Terrier isn't afraid to make your home its play den. The Manchester Toy prefers a warm climate, but preferably not suffocating humidity. As you can probably guess by the name, it is well adapted to the neutral appeal of an English climate where it was originally bred. A yard or garden isnt necessary, but the dog will enjoy any open spaces and it can help your own cause to let it burn off some serious steam outside. All yards and gardens should have sufficient fencing to stop the Toy Terrier from running off and satisfying its adventurous spirit.

About this Breed

The Toy Manchester Terrier is one of two variations in the Manchester Terrier group. The other is known as a Standard Terrier. The Toy Terrier is distinguishable by its tiny size and erect ears. It has a large head which looks almost out of place on such a slender body, and you can clearly recall the dog's whippet heritage by the curve in the back. All Toy Manchester Terriers have a small black nose and the coat is thin and glossy, usually either jet black or tan. As you'd imagine with a dog tracing back to the whippet, Toy Terriers are incredibly quick and capable of displaying a great deal of agility. They are full of energy but their small size means that you don't have to possess a sprawling country mansion to be able to satisfy their needs. The dog is recognizable by its tiny eyes, usually almond style with brown irises. Also recognizable is the tail, which resembles a whip and ends with a point.
