If a Pinscher is the dog of your dreams, but you're looking for something a little smaller, the Manchester Terrier is the dog for you. Surprisingly small, like a miniature Pinscher, the body of the Manchester Terrier is smooth, compact, and muscular. They have a long, narrow head, their ears are v-shaped and semi-erect with a front flap that folds over. The eyes are small almond-shaped and dark in colour and their tail is thicker at the base and tapers to a point. They have a smooth short coat of dense, shiny hair.
These dogs are relatively easy to feed, the main thing to remember with the Manchester Terrier is not to overfeed as they do have a tendency to become overweight. So hold back on the treats!
The short, shiny coat is a cinch to care for and requires minimal grooming - just a good brush on a regular basis with a firm bristle brush, and a bath every two weeks in the warmer months and once a month in the colder months.
It is also recommended to rub them down with a piece of towelling or chamois as this will make their coat shine. To keep their ear passages clean to avoid ear infections and to trim their nails to keep them short.
