|I began a quest to fill the void... the one that only the pitter- patter of
four little fuzzy puppy feet could fill. We've researched doggies that
would be good for apartment life and most were too small or too
large- nothing that felt quite right. We finally settled on a breed-the
Manchester Terrier, but we were unaware as to how rare they were in
the U.S... and so our search began. I've found back-yard breeders,
puppy mills, and absolutely NOTHING up for adoption. Sure there
were breeders for the toy variety, but we were looking for a standard.
This was complicated by David wanting a little girl child. I had put our
names on breeder lists with no luck. I was about to give up, but I
decided that I would do one last search and send out some e-mails.
To my amazement I got a response that a breeder had standards-
just born two days prior... girls even!!! We're so excited!!
