So you’re looking to adopt an Norwich Terrier, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Standing no more than 10 inches at the shoulder and weighing about 12 pounds, Norwich are among the smallest working terriers. Beneath the hard, wiry coat is a stocky, substantial dog. Norwiches are toy-sized but are not satin-pillow dogs—they were originally bred as tough and fearless ratters. They are distinguished from their doggy doppelganger, the Norfolk Terrier, by their erect, pointed ears.Happy-go-lucky, fearless, and sometimes even bossy, Norwiches are energetic enough to play fetch all day, but affectionate enough to enjoy hours of lap time with their favorite human. Short, positive training sessions work best with this clever but sometimes stubborn breed. Three words convey the overall dog: cute, cuter, and cutest. Norwich Terriers are plucky little earthdogs named for their hometown in England. The old cliché “a big dog in a small package” was coined for breeds like the Norwich, who can be oblivious to the fact that they are just 10 inches tall.”
An Norwich Terrier typically ranges from 25.4cm to 25.4cm in height, and weighs from 5.4431084400000005kg to 5.4431084400000005kg.
