The Norfolk Terrier is a small, compact, and sturdy dog. He has a sweet and sometimes bewildered expression, and his small ears hand in folds to the side of his head. The coat of the Norfolk Terrier is straight and wiry, and the color can vary including grizzle, black and tan, red (various shades), or wheaten. These small dogs weigh in at around 11-15 pounds, and reach around 8-10 inches in height.

He is an alert and fearless little dog with a wonderful disposition. A good watchdog, loyal, devoted, never aggressive, and a delightful companion, he adapts well to city or country living. The Norfolk is versatile, agreeable, hardy and one of the smallest of the working Terriers. He was originally used to go to ground to chase fox and other small vermin, either alone or in a pack.

Early socialization is important with the Norfolk Terrier to ensure that he does not become overly timid. A well socialized Norfolk Terrier gets along well with gentle children and those he has been brought up with. These dogs also get along okay with most other pets, although they can become jealous of them. He should not be trusted around rabbits and smaller animals. Some Norfolk Terriers will be friendly when it comes to strangers, but others may be more wary depending on the personality of the dog. The Norfolk Terrier's tendency to bark and raise an alarm makes him an effective watchdog. With the right training and early socialization the Norfolk Terrier makes a charming companion and a loving family pet.

The Norfolk Terrier originates from Britain, and was bred in the twentieth century to hunt vermin. This breed was once grouped with the Norwich Terrier, but the two were separated in the 1960s because of differences with the ear carriage. The breed was registered with the AKC 1936.
If you are considering a Norfolk Terrier puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases
