Tails are docked, not cropped. Those ears are done for sure. Cute dog!

That's what I meant, LOL tired and typing too fast...

The docked tail is a bit of a give away.... As far as I know they never dock a Manchester?

Yes, they're cropped - but they were not posted correctly, which is why they look all wonky. (Oddly enough, it doesn't look like too terrible of a crop for a Miniature Pinscher.)

So you can see why she may have got mixed up, they are almost identical!
They do but I find their heads distinctly different, maybe it's because we had a Manchester before, but she has a straighter top line than Manchesters i have known, more petite head and of course the docked tail... I'd seriously put money on her being a Min Pin, ESP since that's what this lady was told orginally when she bought her, and only decided on the word of someone else who convinced her that she was a Manchester...

Looks like an oversized Min Pin. It actually looks like 99.9% of Miniature Pinschers we see at work, since I live in BYB land

Yeah, manchesters aren't supposed to have docked tails.

My good friend has a standard manchester and a toy manchester (we've taken agility classes together with our dogs for years), and their head shape is distinctly different than the dog in the OP. The OP dog's head shape actually reminds me of Luna's, and I've always thought she resembles a min pin.


8 lbs IS within the breed standard for a toy manchester. 'Course I think it's also within the breed standard for a min pin.

Min Pins have kind of an apple shaped head, like Chihuahuas. Manchester Terriers' head have always reminded me of Bull Terriers without the "lump".

The ears are cropped, you can tell by the missing amount, anyone who knows dog anatomy can see the missing portion of ear (and living with both, makes it even easier to tell). And this dog is 100% Min Pin, looks nothing like a Manchester at all, except for being black/tan. Eye's are wrong, shape of head, size is wrong for a standard which the toy's are not allowed to have their ears cropped, and the tail being docked is the dead give away.

We don't have docked tails here though, so without that, they look very similar to the untrained eye!
