We are thrilled to have "Lucca" join our "Chester" family!
Thank-you, Gerrie, for having enough faith in
me to allow this handsome fellow to come my way!

My Most Sincere Thanks...
For many years Gerrie Hart, of Shal-Mar Manchesters, has been
and will continue to be known for producing outstanding Standard
Manchester Terriers with limited breeding, producing quality-not quantity.
Her knowlege and expertise, sincere love, dedication and devotion to the Man-
chester has had a great impact in the breed, both in and out of the show rings .
Gerrie's dogs speak volumes when it comes to her devotion to the Manchester
breed whether gaiting around the show rings or warming someone's lap or bed.
I consider myself very fortunate to have found not just a wonderful person to
co-own my dogs with ~ but someone I also consider a truly wonderful friend.

Please ~ take a moment and visit Shal-Mar Manchesters by clicking the link above.
You will see what years of love and dedication to the Manchester breed truly means.
