Until 1964 the Norfolk & Norwich
Terriers were considered one breed, after this they became recongnised
as two seperate breeds, those with the pricked ears being the Norwich
Terrier and those with the ears that flop down, known as the Norfolk
Norfolks are one of the smallest of the working terriers, a natural
ratter and spunky hunter, they display a great deal of courage.
Although an outgoing, energetic terrier, the Norfolk is not quarrelsome,
is a sensitive dog, and can become stubborn without an understanding
They are a lovable little dog with a good nature, friendly with
people and children, but can try to be dominate around other dogs.
