Manx Breeders' Directory




  Manx Breed Standard



The most distinctive characteristic of a Manx is its tail-lessness with a rump as “round as an orange”.  Its body is medium in size, sturdy, and compact, with a short back that arches up from shoulders to haunches.  The head is slightly longer than wide with a whisker break, eyes that are round and full, and ears set wide at the base, resulting in the “Manx look”.  The soft, double coat has a short “open” look and is accepted in many patterns and colors.
