Norfolk Terrier

norfolk-terrier

One of the smallest working terriers, the Norfolk Terrier is active, compact and hardy, considered to be the “perfect demon” in the field. Farmers and hunters admire the breed?۪s gameness, loyalty and great charm. Known for his drop ears, the Norfolk Terrier has a wiry, weather resistant coat that can be red, wheaten, black and tan or grizzle.

History

A native of England, the Norfolk used to be considered the same breed as the Norwich Terrier. Comfortable working alone or in packs, it was developed as a barnyard ratter and used to bolt vermin such as fox from their dens during hunts. In 1979 the drop eared variety became known as the Norfolk Terrier and the prick eared version the Norwich Terrier. Today, the two breeds have slight differences and different breed standards.

Temperament

Energetic and spry, the Norfolk Terrier does well with other animals and families. They are known for their ability to adapt to different situations, making the breed ideal for either the city or country lifestyle. They make affectionate and loyal companions and enjoy walks and spending time with their owners. The Norfolk?۪s coat requires regular grooming, including brushing and stripping.
