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 Terrier.
Originally, the Norwich Terriers used to be highly appreciated dogs used for killing rats and hunting foxes. Today, they are lively and sociable family dogs. They are ideal for both the city and the countryside.
They are a lovable little dog with a good nature, friendly with people and children, but can try to be dominate around other dogs. They are alert, smart and easy to train.

Grooming- the shaggy coat can be clipped to help keep maintenance low. Regular brushing will keep it neat and tidy, wash when needed.

Exercise- they thrive on an active life, so regular walks, runs and plays are needed to keep them fit and happy.

Health- This breed can suffer from genetic eye diseases.
