Among the smallest of the terriers, Norwich Terriers are likeable and not at all confrontational. Almost breathtakingly full of beans, these diminutive dogs are hardy, bold and wonderfully cheerful.
Broad, especially between the ears, slightly rounded.
Short, compact back, level topline, short loins and deep chest.
Any shade of red, wheaten, black and tan or grizzle,
Medium-sized, slightly rounded at the tip, set well apart at the top of the skull.
Moderate length, contributing to the general balance of the dog. Thick at the base, tapering to the tip.
Hard, wiry and straight, close to the body, thick undercoat.
Norwich Terriers are low on their feet, compact and solid, with good substance and bone in spite of their size. “Battle” scars – inevitable in terriers – must never be penalized in shows.
Powerfully built like a big dog, Norwich Terriers have a very distinctive gait, showing their footpads at the front when they trot, taking proud, determined steps.
