Currently there are two female Manchester terrier adults available that are 6 and 8 years of age. They are or will be spayed. Love to cuddle!  Reason for re-homing is they do not get along with some of the other dogs they are living with. They would do better in a one dog or two dog home. Experienced Manchester or Rescue homes wanted. These dogs will need people to work with them to adjust to new homes. Generally it will take a month or so before they will feel safe in their new homes. 

MANCHESTER TERRIER PLANNED LITTERS – 

Manchester Terrier waiting list is now full for 2021.Thank you to all those that have shown interest in this wonderful breed. 

We do not expect to have any Manchester puppies now until 2022. However there is times that people have life changes or we do not have the right sex so they have to wait for a later date to get their puppy. This could make more puppies available. There is also a chance of an extra litter if we import a new bitch. 

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 moonshadowsmts@gmail.com. You can also messenger Jodi at https://www.facebook.com/moonshadowskennel.

We will only breed when there are potential homes for our puppies. $100 deposits will be taken to hold a puppy and keep your position on the waiting list. You can defer to the next litter. You may be on our waiting list without a deposit however, this may mean you will be moved down the waiting list if others are willing to pay deposit before you are.

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.

Moonshadows is a small kennel who has been raising and owned Manchester Terriers for over 30 years. Jodi joined us about 8 years ago.

We only breed for pups to go home in the warmer weather so they get the adequate socialization and exposure to different sounds and environments.

We start when the pups are 3 days old with the Bio-Sensor program 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 easier to new surrounding, people and activities in their lives.

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.

COLLIE LITTERS

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

Next Collie litter will be born around April 4th, 2021. Smooths and Roughs and all colours expected.

We have started our waiting list for puppies Collies in 2021. First litter is due to be born April 4th.

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 three 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. Both will be spayed and up to date on shots. Also a 2 year old spayed female needing to be rehomed due to allergies. Prefer people with rescue or Manchester experience. 

We are accepting adoption forms again as a lot of our people in the States and we will not know to closer to the time if they will be able to get their puppies across the border. Call 905-382-6627 or email for an adoption form. Moonshadowspage@sympatico.ca.  or kentnjodi@gmail.com. Or messenger Jodi at our facebook page.

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 ours tend to be larger than the recommended size for the Breed Standard here in America.

Our 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. We also have a Kentucky Mountain Horse mare broken to drive so we enjoy taking her out on buggy rides. 

Kent and Jodi Parkinson reside in Hamilton. Jodi has shown and raised her own Manchesters now for a number of years sharing the Moonshadows Kennel name. Jodi looks after our facebook page, and shows in confirmation, agility, rally and obedience trials.
