Manchester Terrier - Guide to Manchester Terriers

Description: Manchester Terriers come in two varieties - Standard and Toy and the only differences are their ears and sizes. The Standard calls for folded, erect or cropped ears, yet the Toy variety has only naturally erect ears. As for size, the Standard should be between 12 and 22 pounds, while the Toy must not exceed 12 pounds. Manchester Terriers are muscular, sturdy, sleek, smooth-coated and elegant.
