Spirited and stocky with prick ears and a slightly foxy expression, the Norwich Terrier is one of the smallest working terriers. Despite his small size, the Norwich has good substance and is an eager worker. The breed?۪s wiry, weather resistant coat can be red, wheaten, black and tan or grizzle.

History

The Norwich originated in East Anglia, England and was developed as a barnyard ratter. Game and hardy, they were used to flush fox and other vermin from their dens during hunts and also cherished as a fun-loving family pet. The breed used to have two ears styles but now is only allowed to have upright ears. In 1979 the drop eared variety became a separate breed known as the Norfolk Terrier.

Temperament

Fearless and loyal, the Norwich 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. Because a Norwich has strong hunting instincts and typical terrier curiosity, most breeders and owners recommend that the breed be exercised in a fenced area or on leash. The wiry coat requires regular grooming, including brushing and stripping.
