English Toy Terrier Black & Tan

These short-haired terriers are descended from Manchester Terriers, also one of the presumed ancestors of Dobermans, although they hail from further west, the Port of Liverpool.

About the English Toy Terrier Black & Tan

As the name suggests, these dogs combine the qualities of a terrier and a toy, although the toy characteristics soon gained the upper hand in the breeding programme. These dogs were once used to kill rats by the dozen, so they are alert and never overly nervous.

These charming little dogs are fun-loving and suited to any home environment. Their terrier influences make them an inquisitive and energetic breed, but they are happy to spend the day at home with their human family.
