The Norwich Terrier
Good Things, in Small Packages...


In the mid-nineteenth century in England, it was a
fad to create breeds of dogs suitable for a local area.  Some
breeders tried by crossing smaller Irish Terriers, perhaps
Yorkshire Terriers and others, with tiny local terriers.  It is
thought that the Norwich Terrier, originated in East Anglia,
England, from such experimentation.  Early specimens were
red, black and tan, but were of a mixed type until about 1914,
when a concerted effort was made to stabilize the breed.  This
was accomplished by 1923 and became known as the Norwich
Terrier.  It was granted breed recognition by the Kennel Club
in 1932.  In 1964, in England, the drop-eared Norwich was
recognized as a separate breed and was called the Norfolk
Terrier.  The US followed suit in 1979.

A small dog, this prick eared breed is spirited, stocky,
active and friendly.  It is quite happy in a modest sized living
quarters, and it needs exercise, three or four times per day.
They shed quite a bit, but grooming it shouldn't take long.
They like children a lot, bonding to the whole family.
Happy and fearless, loyal and affectionate, the
Norwich Terrier is an ideal companion.
