History

The Manchester Terrier closely resembles the Black and Tan Terrier, the oldest known breed of terrier, from which it was developed.

Care and Health

Manchester Terriers can be prone to von Willebrand’s disease, an inherited blood disorder that inhibits blood clotting. Other problems sometimes seen in the Manchester Terrier include patellar luxation, or a dislocation of the kneecap, and Legg-Calve-Perthes disease. MTs have short, sleek coats that don't shed a great deal (though the shedding happens all year long). Owners can brush their Manchester Terriers weekly with a bristle brush to keep the shed to a minimum; hair cleanup--vacuuming the floors and lint rollers on clothes and furniture--will only be needed once in a while.

Fun Fact

A Manchester Terrier almost never drools. If your MT is drooling excessively, it may be a sign of a medical issue, in which case a veterinarian's care is needed.
