Norfolk Terrier Information

Norfolk TerrierWeighing in at only 10-12 pounds, the Norfolk Terrier is a tiny little bundle of joy and attitude. This hardy breed was used by hunters and farmers in the field for its even temperament, fearless nature and adaptable attitude.

Affectionate and loyal, the Norfolk is more social than other Terriers and loves being part of a family. His folded-over ears, button nose, deep eyes and wiry fur (which can be black and tan, grizzle, red or wheaten) are hard to resist! Just make sure he gets lots of exercise and play time – this breed is active.
