One of the doyens of the terrier group and part of the lineage of several well-known terrier breeds, Manchesters were skilful ratters for centuries before dog fanciers started to become interested in them. They were also used to hunt rabbits alongside other terriers. They are named after the English city of Manchester, once the center of the global textile industry.Manchester Terriers are compact, elegant and robust dogs with substance, reminiscent of a Doberman, but smaller. Which is no surprise, actually, because the breed was used to create its German ally at the end of the 19th century. Their purposeful expression is backed by an athletic body in a beautifully colored coat.

Manchester terriers are relatively rare, especially outside their homeland. There are several clubs, but it was the British Manchester Terrier Club that saved the breed from oblivion after World War II.
