Home of quality Toy Manchester Terriers. Velvet Firefly Kennels is located in Clinton, PA, nestled on five wooded acres surrounded by picturesque Pennsylvania farmland. Velvet Firefly has been owned and operated by Pauline Binek for over 40 years. We are proud to be the home of 100+ champion toy Manchester Terriers. We only breed the TRUE toy - our lines were sired by an English Toy Terrier import, Champion Reeberrich Hyperion. Ryan claimed an American Championship, a Register of Merit and the American Manchester Terrier Club Hall of Fame Award.
If you are looking for a quality show dog that can be obedience or agility trained or if you are looking for a quality pet to snuggle up with, a Toy Manchester Terrier is for you! Dogs range in size from 6 to 10 pounds and are quality line bred for wonderful show dogs or loving pets.
Did you know that the Toy Manchester is a very rare breed of dog. Only 167 were registered by the AKC last year and that included the toys and the standard Manchester together.
The Toy Manchester is a great companion. It is a very affectionate little lap dog and likes nothing better than napping on a loved one’s lap or sleeping under the covers on a cold winter’s night. (Or summer, fall or spring!)
These little dogs are very intelligent and love confirmation, obedience, agility, fly ball, or just playing ball or frisbee in the back yard.
Velvet Firefly’s line has a long life span. I personally have had Manchesters live to 19 years of age.
The Toy Manchester does have one flaw - they are like potato chips, you can’t have just one. The more the merrier. Good news is, you can accommodate at least 20 on your couch or bed and still have room for you.
