- 1962 wurde der Toy Black and Tan Terrier in English Toy Terrier umbenannt und erhielt so seinen Namen.
- Der Britische Kennel Club öffnete als erster die Grenzen und erlaubte es Manchester Terrier und Manchester Toy Terrier zu importieren, um den Genpool auf der Insel aufzufrischen. Das war auch dringend notwendig, denn durch den engen Genpool hatten sich Krankheiten wie Patellaluxation, fehlendes Haar im Kehl-und Brustbereich, fehlende Zähne usw. manifestiert. Leider gibt es auch heute noch in Deutschland wenig Hunde die nicht miteinander verwandt sind, was unsere Rasse natürlich nicht wirklich weiterbringt.
Um den Genpool unserer Zucht zu erweitern haben wir Jacky aus den USA bei uns aufgenommen.
- Die ETTs (TMT) aus den USA und Kanada sind etwas knochenstärker, haben etwas länger gestreckte Köpfe, sind zumeist vollzahning und waren unbediengt nötig um die Rasse ETTs wieder gesunden zu lassen.

SECOND DOG BREED FOR TODAY IS THE ENGLISH TOY TERRIER
The English Toy Terrier - Black and Tan is a small breed of terrier in the toy dog group.
Though it may be tiny, this plucky, clever breed is every inch a “real” dog, just in miniature. The similarity of its appearance to that of the Manchester Terrier is no coincidence, as the two breeds were grouped as one in the United Kingdom until the 1920s, and still are today in the United States, with the English Toy Terrier known as the Toy Manchester Terrier. Its finer bone structure may be the result of some input from the Italian Greyhound, but it has largely retained its larger cousin’s energy, vigour, and courage. As is typical of a terrier, it can demonstrate an aloof and suspicious manner towards strangers, but it is also an extremely lovable and affectionate pet, and makes a great family dog, though it may be a little too small and easily injured to be suitable for the under-fives.
The Kennel Club lists the English Toy Terrier as a vulnerable native breed, meaning that less than 300 puppies are registered by the organisation each year, and so efforts are being made to increase the demand for, and breeding of, this appealing little dog. To this end, Toy Manchester Terriers from the United States can be re-registered as English Toy Terriers in order to grow the breeding population. Such outbreeding, though resisted by some purists, will enhance the genetic diversity within the UK population, and should hopefully help reduce the incidence of several health problems recognised within the breed. However, most English Toy Terriers are very healthy, and have a lifespan of 12 to 13 years.
Growing urban populations in England in the seventeenth century, coupled with poor hygiene, lead to a massive surge in rodent numbers, something that led, in turn, to public health problems. City dwellers therefore found that they needed small terriers with a penchant for killing rodents in order to keep their neighbourhoods and homes habitable, and it was from this necessity that the English Toy Terrier was born. The English Black and Tan Terrier, which is now extinct, belonging to the Fell Terrier class, is most closely related, and was known as a capable vermin hunter. It was mostly likely cross-bred with the Whippet by the early Mancunian breeders to lend it more speed, resulting in a dog that was fast, blood-thirsty, and small enough to comfortably share its owners’ cramped lodgings.
Apart from being a public health necessity, rat baiting became a popular sport for the common man, with proud owners allowing their dogs to be placed into a ring with up to several hundred rats, and then placing bets on how long it would take the dog to dispatch a given number of the rodents. Seen through a twenty-first century lens, this was a cruel practice for all the animals involved, as the dogs themselves often suffered horrific injuries inflicted by the desperate rats. This sport was banned around the time of the Kennel Club’s inauguration in the nineteenth century, but the breed continued to enjoy popularity as a show dog by virtue of its sculpted, elegant appearance. In the 1920s, a growing separation between small and larger specimens was acknowledged by the division of the then Black and Tan Terrier into the English Toy Terrier and the larger Manchester Terrier.
Over the years, the explosion in the importation and popularity of foreign breeds gradually led to a decline in English Toy Terrier numbers, a trend also seen for the Manchester Terrier, and both are now considered vulnerable breeds. While demand for their rat-killing services may no longer exist on any great scale, both are charming, vivacious breeds that are perfectly suitable as pets, and can hopefully be successfully promoted and revived over the coming decades.
Hier noch einmal ein Thema, welches mir persönlich sehr am Herzen liegt.
Egal in welchem Land und bei welchem Züchter Ihr einen ETT kauft, bitte lasst euch beraten und belegen, das die Elterntiere auf diese beiden Krankheiten untersucht sind und wie das Ergebnis ist.
Bisher werden die Untersuchenungen nur in Minnesota angeboten, was aber wirklich kein Problem ist.
Unsere Jacky durfte durch die Bestimmungen erst mit 15 Wochen in D. Einreisen, daher habe ich sie gleich in den USA Testen lassen.
