Manchester Terrier (Standard) Dog Temperament
The Manchester terrier has been described as "catlike," being impeccably clean, independent, reserved with strangers, yet sensitive. She is more responsive than many terriers and is generally a well-mannered house dog. She is devoted to her family, and enjoys napping at her special person's side. Otherwise, she is busy, ever nosing around for adventure or a game. Some tend to dig.
