|The Teddy Bear of Terriers is|
The Norfolk Terrier Dog
Remember that the Norfolk's ears, "F" for fold while
the Norwich's ears are prick like a "W". They are now
two distinct breeds both derived from the Irish Terrier,
bred to other small terriers possibly the Border and the
Cairn. Not much wonder they are such nice pets.
The Norfolk Terrier is game, hardy, fearless, loyal and
very charming and is one of the smallest of the working
terriers. He makes a very good watchdog. His coat is
harsh, wiry and quite weather-resistant, and comes
in colors of red, wheaten, black and tan or grizzle.
The coat should be stripped, but considering the
size of the dog, this is an easy task.
