The Norwich Terrier originally came from East Anglia in England and was used as a barnyard ratter. He’s among the smallest of working terriers. He flushed out foxes and other vermin from wherever they hid. He’s a great hunter as well as an ideal pet. There used to be two different ear styles but now he only has upright ears. He has strong hunting instincts so he needs to exercise in a fenced enclosure or on a leash to stop him running off in search of prey.

His wiry coat is resistant to the weather and can be coloured grizzle, tan and black, wheaten or red. He can live in the city or country equally well as he’s highly adaptable. His coat needs to be groomed regularly, including stripping and brushing. His height is always less than 10 inches.
