In its native England, The Kennel Club recognises the Manchester terrier in the Terrier Group and the closely related English toy terrier (black and tan) in the Toy Group. In North America, the Manchester terrier is divided into two varieties. The toy Manchester terrier was originally recognised as a separate breed in 1938, bred down in size from the Manchester terrier. The toy Manchester terrier weighs less than 12 lb (5.4 kg) and has naturally erect ears, never cropped. It is placed in the Toy Group by the Canadian Kennel Club and the American Kennel Club, although the Manchester terrier is placed in the Terrier Group. The Manchester terrier non-toy variety weighs 12 to 22 lb (5.4 to 10.0 kg) and has three allowable ear types (naturally erect, button, or cropped). Other than size differences and ear type, the Manchester terrier and the toy Manchester terrier have the same overall appearance, and since 1958 have been varieties of the same breed.
