Howdy, Folks! You've landed on the website of Texangals, the home of Toy Manchester Terriers in Central Texas.

My son with "the pack"

In 2014 while living in England, we brought home our foundation bitch, Bluebonnet Dreaming Spires at Texangals (Bonnie). After a year in the show ring in England, which included coming in 3rd in her class at the premier UK dog show, Crufts, we moved to the Austin area in the summer of 2016.

We've since been establishing ourselves as a preservation breeder of Toy Manchester Terriers in the US,  an AKC Breeder of Merit, and Breeder with HEART.

Despite limited breeding, we have made up thirteen conformation champions (five of which are grand champions), four trick dog champions, three FastCAT champions, and more of them on the verge of finishing their titles in all of these pathways.

Just this past year, we not only won Bred-By Exhibitor Best in Specialty Show in Dallas with GCHB Texangals Killing Time TKN ("Katie"), but her dam was named Brood Bitch of the Year for the American Manchester Terrier Club at their national specialty banquet in Houston, July 2022.

Katie is also invited to the NOHS finals in Orlando for 2022, finishing the qualifying period as #3 for the breed.

Our puppies have gone to dedicated fanciers all over the US who know that the breed is versatile and agile, and proving it through other events like agility, scent work, barn hunt, and even dock diving!

We're planning two litters in 2023 so be sure to express your interest for one of them by using the puppy application found on this website.

Ted and Zoot, a couple of winning gals!

Apologies for Radio Silence - May 2023 update

I can't believe that I haven't posted on here since November 2022, and not been bragging from the rooftops that Katie is now the top bitch in the country! We took a big trip up to Pennsylvania in April where not only did Katie grab a Select Bitch, a Best of Variety, and an Owner-Handled Group 1, but she earned enough points to achieve the Silver level of her grand champion title. If you're not a show person yourself, you're probably sort of glazing over - blah blah blah blah. The short version, she's been doing really well in the show ring, and I'm super proud of her. Also at home are my foundation bitch, Bonnie, who is enjoying retirement; Larwood, the boy from England, who finished his championship and has had his first taster of the running event called FastCAT; and Hermia, who is one "major" away from her own championship. Larwood is also going to be a daddy soon, all being well. We bred him to Zoot (who lives with my mom) and are expecting puppies

Texangals Are Expecting!

Bonnie in the Buttercups We're expecting puppies at the end of this month at Texangals in Central Texas. The dam is "Bonnie" (Ch Bluebonnet Dreaming Spires at Texangals), currently #13 TMT in the country, and the sire is "Bentley" (GCH CH Dream Maker's One Sweet Ride At Jhen TKN) who is #7 in breed and #1 in TMT Owner Handler. Bentley  Bonnie with her Boy in Junior Showmanship Bonnie is a 3/4 English bitch imported in 2016 who goes back to Amalek lines with Maggical/Rosewood TMT. Bentley also goes back to the English Reeberrich kennel via Velvet Firefly where his lines connect up with Bonnie's. For those of you who don't really care about lineage, the bottom line is that they're very well bred, they are bred with a number of international influences, and as far as temperament, get along well with other dogs, other types of dogs, and children. A number of dogs in Bonnie's line back in England are Pets as Therapy dogs, visit

Guess the Dog's Name Challenge

It’s the big, big thing on Facebook right now, showing a photo of your dog with another beside it that relates to your dog’s name. I have been wary of joining in: these Facebook things are ways of data gathering, and I’m very suspicious of them. Also, you may be hard-pressed to work out most of mine! So for your viewing pleasure (or not), here is the dog name challenge for Texangals while I’m down to just the three girls.
