Description of the Norfolk Terrier

The Norfolk Terrier

Although Norfolk and Norwich share the same ancestry, there has been a little interbreeding of ear-types since World War 2.

In 1932 the Norwich Terrier was recognized, including those with drop ears.

The drop ears were bred to a different breed.

They had less black eye-rims, had more generous feet, better rear angulation in stifle and hock and tended to have flatter muscles on shoulders and hindquarters.

They matured slower, were some slightly more jealous and were hunt and racing addicts.

They were more “back to nature”, easier to breed and more independent than the Norwich Terrier.

In 1964 the Norfolk was recognized as a seperate breed.

Although bred with drop ears, sometimes erect or half erect ears are to be seen.

The type and character of this terrier is quite different from the Norwich
and everything mentioned above still remains in the Norfolk today.

These little clowns, sweet as they are, can still hunt and sometimes it is difficult to call them out of the water when they try to hunt the ducks.
Our Norfolks love swimming.

But they are easy to train and some like sports like agility.

Sociable to people, children and animals when brought up with them with love and care.

They are seen in red, reddish and blue and tan colour and need to be stripped at least 2 times a year to keep them a good coat.
To keep him in good shape at least 3 or 4 times is necessary.
