NORFOLK TERRIER APPEARANCE:
The Norfolk Terrier has a wire-haired coat which, according to the breed standard, should be "all shades of red, wheaten, black and tan, or grizzle." In reality, the Norfolk can run to blond, though this is not considered desirable.

Since being recognized as a distinct breed, the Norfolk has grown apart from its cousin. Today, its coat is generally flatter and softer than that of the Norwich, its build relatively less stocky and its neck and coupling longer.

NORFOLK TERRIER HISTORY:
The Norfolk Terrier is a small breed of dog, one of many terrier breeds. Prior to 1960, when it gained recognition as an independent breed, it was a variant of the Norwich Terrier, distinguished from the Norwich by its "drop", or folded ears.

NORFOLK TERRIER HEALTH:


NORFOLK TERRIER TEMPERAMENT:
"Alert, gregarious, fearless and loyal. Never aggressive."

The Norfolk terrier usually plays well with children, although because of the dog's small size, younger children should be supervised.
