The old cliché about a “big dog in a small package” was coined for breeds like the Norwich terrier. Norwich can be oblivious to the fact that they’re just ten inches tall. They are a medium energy breed that is a natural hunter and is curious about the world around them. A Norwich demands human companionship. They are easy to train, as most Norwich will offer any desired behavior for a food treat. Norwich are portable and are adaptable to different situations making the breed ideal for either the city or country lifestyle.
Did You Know?
The Norwich Terrier is a fearless little dog bred to hunt vermin.
There was not a lot of uniformity in the breed until 1923 when the breed became known as the Norwich Terrier and a breed standard was accepted by The Kennel Club (England).
The Norwich Terrier's prick ears are a distinguishing characteristic.
Once known as Cantab Terriers, the game and hardy little dogs were useful on the hunt, in the stableyard and as a fun-loving family pet.
The name covered both the drop-eared and prick-eared varieties until 1979.
As a working terrier of East Anglia, the Norwich was believed to have been developed by crossing small Irish Terriers with other short-legged terrier breeds.
