Abby's Story...
My name is Abby and I am a 2 year old Manchester Terrier mix. PLDP took me under their loving wings when I found myself in a local SPCA after I was found as a stray. Not sure how someone could lose a smart girl like me, but it happened. I weigh a sturdy 15 lbs, I am tall for my weight as you can see I have long beautiful legs and a long tail to match.. I have lots of energy but I love to cuddle and snuggle too. I am crate trained as long as you dont leave me too super long, but who would be?! I will admit when I am running around the house you need to keep an eye on me so I don't have any potty accidents. I wouldn't mind being on a leashed to you in the house until I totally have my manners under control at my new place. I get along with most of my foster siblings but sometimes the little ones just annoy me so my foster mom thinks I shouldn't live with dogs smaller than me or ones that I can pick on because yes I am a little bit of a bully, I am ashamed to admit but its true. As far as cats go I am pretty good with them except if they run from me because I take that as "hey dog chase me" so I chase them, but if the kitty turns around and tells me 'no that's not what i meant" and smacks at me - I quickly get that message and leave them alone. I love to play tug of war with toys (with my human or other dogs) and a mouth size squeaker toy ball is my favorite. I am currently holding the championship title in my foster home with the "'sit' command, and I am doing good at "down" too as long as I see a yummy treat in your hand, why work for free?! I walk super proud on my leash and just love to be out and about. You wont hear a peep out of me while riding in the car in a crate either, I am a fantastic traveler. My foster mom thinks a home with children over 10 would be a good fit for me, someone to play with me and that will respect my space when i need some. I am not a social butterfly, I am somewhat standoffish and scared when first meeting people, so some understanding patience will be needed. Please contact PLDP ppl if you have any questions or would like to meet me. I like my foster home but I know its only temporary so I am anxious to get to my final forever home so I can settle in with my new family! I am UTD, spayed, chipped, HW tested negative and preventative started.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Abby, a Essington Manchester Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Manchester Terrier for sale in Essington, or seeking a Manchester Terrier dog from a breeder in Essington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Essington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Essington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Manchester Terrier breeders who help with Manchester Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Essington paves the way for another one to be saved.
