The Manchester Terrier is named after the English city where much of the breed’s early development took place. Sleek 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).
