A full-fledged terrier, just a little smaller than usual, but no less bold and vivacious, this hardy breed certainly packs a punch! Friendly and not at all cantankerous.

Head+

Broad, especially between the ears, slightly rounded, well defined stop.

lupoid

Body+

Compact, short back, level topline and well sprung ribs.

lupoid

Coat+

Any shade of red, wheaten, black and tan or grizzle.

lupoid

Ears+

Medium-sized, V shaped but slightly rounded at the tip, falling inward against the cheek.

lupoid

Tail+

Moderate length, contributing to the general balance of the dog. Thick at the base, tapering to the tip.

lupoid

Hair+

Hard, wiry and straight, close to the body.

lupoid

Norfolks are among the smallest of the terriers, low on their feet, compact and solid, with a short back, good substance and bone. “Battle” scars – inevitable in terriers – are acceptable. Petite but powerful.

Did you know ?

Quickly tell the Norfolk from its twin the Norwich by its small triangular ears. Norwich Terriers have drop ears.
