2020 Puppies Available

Manchester Terrier Litters Planned for 2020

Our Manchester pups are early this year.

Annie and Orson had a litter born February 6th. All puppies are spoken for. Thank you to all the happy families soon to receive their bundle of joy!

New litter born March 1st. Five puppies, 3 girls and two boys. Naomi and Monty litter. Puppies available.

These will be the only litters for us in 2020 for Standard Manchester Terriers. Pups ready to go around the end of April.

Waiting list started for 2021.
We have puppies not spoken for this year as some people deferred til next year.
Due to unforeseen circumstances some of our potential homes fell through as timing did not work out for them. We try to always have homes lined up for our puppies prior to doing a breeding. Our pups are usually all spoken for before they are born with deposits. So if you are just now considering a Manchester it is your lucky year. As this is a rare breed with few breeders especially in Canada and Eastern and Mid-Eastern States.

Sorry we only have Standards.

We still have some that will be available. Due first week of March. We have deposits for mainly girls. So we most likely will have some more males available. Will post when born what is available.

Deposits and adoption forms being taken now for 2020. We have some people already waiting for 2021 as well if you are interested in reserving a pup for a year from now.

Co-ownership homes sometimes available to those that will be willing for their dog to be shown or bred. This allows us to extend our breeding program but the dog has his own home to have more love and attention than a multi-dog household. If willing to help keep the breed thriving please let us know you would be interested in this option.

We plan a Rough Collie breeding in 2020. We have a few potential homes for them now. There is a possibility for a mixed Smooth and Rough litter if the weather is too bad to get down to Ohio for the preferred stud dog. We may consider a different male if enough smooth pups are wanted. Otherwise, it will be an all rough litter most likely all colours.

We breed for health, temperament, and structure for a healthy pet and/or show dog.

All our dogs live in our house and our place is inspected yearly by the Niagara Falls Humane Society before we can get our kennel license.

Whats Available!

June 16, 2014


We have Standard Manchester Terrier pups available for 2020.

Two litters due to be born around March 1st. First litter has 3 girls and two boys actually born on March 1st.

Jodi just had a litter born on February 6th which all have homes to go to.

Some of the expecting pups have homes. We expect to have some boys available and possibly more girls depending on how many we have.

Due to unforeseen circumstances though we firmed up homes before the breedings some of the potential homes fell through. Due to timing or deciding on a different breed. Which is good for you if you have not yet reserved a pup. This will be our final litters for 2020.

If interested in a pup in 2021 you can reserve now!

There is an adoption form to fill in, if interested. This helps us insure the potential owner and the Manchester Terrier breed is a good match. For a form please email Moonshadowspage@sympatico.ca or kentnjodi@gmail.com

We will only breed when there are potential homes for our puppies. $50 deposits will be taken to hold a puppy and keep your position on the waiting list. You can defer to the next litter.

The number of litters we have per year depends on how many potential homes we have for our pups. Though we usually only have 2 to 3 litters a year. We are not a big kennel our dogs are our house pets as well. The most litters we could have in a year is 3.

Generally we do not bred if we do not have the right homes lined up for our puppies. We try not to bring pups into the world if we do not know they have potential homes lined up.

We are a small kennel who has been raising and owned Manchester Terriers for over 30 years. We only breed for pups to go home in the wamer weather so they get the adequate socialization and exposure to different sounds and environments.

We start when the pups are 3 days old we do the Bio-Sensor and as they grow we introduce new things into their lives. Including early socialization, new environments, new scents, other dogs all this helps them learn and adjust to new things in their lives. https://breedingbetterdogs.com/article/early-neurological-stimulation

We bred for health, structure and temperament. We do not want to see our breed go extinct which is our purpose for breeding. This breed is much to great a companion to have that happen. It is a vulnerable breed now and their numbers are declining. Consider a purebred to save the breed!

We have overseas bloodlines so our Manchesters tend to be bigger than American lines. This is due to the fact that only in America are the Toy and Standards considered the same breed. Also Overseas lines do not have weight in their Breed Standards. So usually our bitches 20-24 lbs and dogs are 22 – 26 lbs. Fifteen to seventeen inches at the shoulder.

Occasionally, we help home adult dogs that are in need of new homes. Some of these may need patience and understanding to allow them to trust and accept their new homes. Please call if interested if finding out more about how to keep you name down for this. 905-382-6627.


Moonshadows in Niagara Falls with Sandy & Simon Cunniff may do a Rough Collie litter if enough deposits from potential puppy owners. We like to be sure we have homes for our puppies before they go to homes. Tri and Blues should be in this litter.

Expected Litters and What is Available

May 8, 2010

We have started our waiting list for puppies Collies in 2020 and Manchesters for 2021.

We do not like our Manchesters to go into homes in the colder months as they then usually do not get the socialization and exposure that they need to be well adjusted dogs.

We may have two older females available if we find the right home close by. As this way we could have them visit and adjust before leaving for a new home.

One litter born March 1st -2  boys and 3 girls.  Some are already spoken for. Ready to go around the end of April.

This will be our final litters for 2020.

Our waiting list is started for 2021. If interested, please call 905-382-6627. Or email for an adoption form. Moonshadowspage@sympatico.ca.  or kentnjodi@gmail.com

Welcome! This is just the beginning of our Website.

We are dedicated to producing quality Standard Manchester Terriers, Smooth and Rough Collies for pet and show. All of our dogs are our loving pets and show dogs. They are not kennel dogs but part of the family.

We specialize in European and Australian Bloodlines as I do not feel that a Toy Manchester is the same breed. Only in the States and Canada that I know of can you have a Standard Manchester with no Standards in it’s bloodline.

However, since we breed for pure Standard Manchesters most of mine tend to be larger than the recommended size for the Breed Standard here in America.

My main purpose in breeding is to preserve this breed with healthy, quality, and good temperament. I am one of the few breeders that can run same sex dogs together with each other without conflicts. This is a breed that is on the vulnerable breed list in it’s Country of Origin. They are way to good a companion dog that loves to please and be with it’s owner for it to go extinct.

Our first Collie was a drop off dog. When he passed away of old age, we decided to get into Smooth and Rough Collies. The Smooth Collie has less of the work than a rough as far as grooming goes. However, they shed more constantly. Both have the same wonderful temperment.

Our house and where we keep our dogs is inspected every year by the Niagara Falls Animal Control Officers to become a registered Kennel in Niagara Falls.

Our next love is Canadian Horses. They are like large dogs. Love to greet and follow you around. Our horses are now very old. But in very good shape and we can still ride them.
