found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Meet Hansel, a Manchester Terrier puppy, who along with his littermate, Gretel, was given up by a breeder because they have luxating patella. This condition, also referred to as floating kneecaps, is quite common in small dogs. At this time, neither is showing any symptoms nor do they require surgery. To help in avoiding problems in the future, Hansel should always keep a healthy body weight and maintain good muscle tone through regular exercise. Building muscle will help to keep the knee stable.
This dynamic duo are terriers through and through – feisty, clever, persistent, quick to bark, love to chase, and like most terriers can be stubborn. With lots of energy to spare, Hansel would be a great dog for an active family. He needs someone who is home during the day so that he can continue to socialize with all creatures – two and four-legged. Manchester Terriers were bred to hunt rats and have maintained some of their hunting instincts; therefore a fenced yard to keep Hansel safe is important. Puppy classes and basic obedience training should be considered; these dogs not only need regular exercise but mental stimulation as well. After a day of fun and exercise, you can expect to find Hansel curled up in a cozy bed or burrowed under the covers. Part of being a responsible guardian is doing research to determine if a particular breed is right for you and your family. We encourage all of our potential adopters to research the Manchester Terrier before you consider adopting Hansel or Gretel.
