Norwich Terrier

Norwich Terrier


Height: 9-12 inches

Weight: 11-12 lbs.

Life Span: 13-14 yrs.

Breed Group: Terriers

Overview
Except for its erect ears, the Norwich terrier is identical to the Norfolk, and the breeds share the same ancestors. Fearless, loyal, and affectionate, Norwich terriers make good companions and live harmoniously with other pets.

They are at home in rural and urban surroundings. They love children (if socialized with them early) and do well in obedience classes.

Because of their energy and eagerness to chase small animals, these dogs should be walked on a leash. Norwich terriers are good watchdogs and will bark if strangers appear at the door.

Appearance
Compact and short-legged, the Norwich has medium-size erect ears and an almost weatherproof coat. The topcoat is hard, wiry, and straight, with a shorter undercoat.

This breed can be found in all shades of red, wheaten, black and tan, or grizzle, sometimes with dark points.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
The Norwich terrier needs to be brushed or combed a couple of times a week and clipped twice a year.

They need a lot of exercise, so long walks and runs are essential. They should not be kept in a fenced yard, for they will dig or bark excessively if left alone for too long.

Origins
Norwich and Norfolk terriers -- bred from Irish, Border, and cairn terriers -- developed in the 19th century in England. Originally bred to be ratters, they were later used to hunt foxes.

The breeds began to develop independently in the 1930s. These small terriers have been recognized as two separate breeds since 1964 in England and 1979 in the United States.

Special Alerts
Breed-related health concerns include summer eczema.
