A barnyard ratter from England, the Norwich Terrier is a spirited, stocky dog with prick ears and a slightly foxy expression. Despite his small size, the Norwich is an eager and fearless worker of substantial substance. Due to the breed’s hunting instincts and typical terrier curiosity, he should have regular exercise. A fun-loving companion, the Norwich is ideal for city or country homes. His wiry coat requires regular stripping and brushing.

The name Norwich Terrier covered the drop-eared and prick-eared varieties until 1964, when the drop-eared variety was recognized in England as a separate breed, the Norfolk Terrier.
