Why Not Consider the Manchester Terrier Dog?
By Blake Kritzberg
The Manchester terrier is one of those dogs that puts a lot of personality into a fairly small package. A remarkably attractive pet with a convenient smooth and short-haired coat, this terrier is one of those breeds with an interesting background stemming from the early, “working dog” days.
These terriers derive from the old black and tan terrier breed in England. Back in those days, terriers weren’t known for their beauty — to put it kindly — but they were tireless, muscular, and keen. In fact, they were widely known as the best rat killers around, regardless of the terrain. Their skill and enthusiasm easily overcame any objections to their physical appearance, and the breed grew very popular.
