Norfolk Terriers are one of the smallest but cutest terriers around today. They are short but sturdy, have a wiry, hard, weatherproof coat (handy!) that requires minimal grooming and upkeep. They have a little fox-like face and small drooping ears that hang tight to the face. They're lively and friendly little dogs that are also smart cookies with a mind of their own, which can make them a bit wilful at times. They will get on well with older children and are great pets for older, yet still active people. Norfolk Terriers are also very active, courageous, and affectionate family members, loving cuddles with their humans. Norfolk Terriers make great furry friends, are easy to train

The coat is relatively easy to keep in good condition, but a regular brushing will help, as well as hand plucking twice a year. A professional groomer or the breeder will be able to give you advice on how to best to keep your canine pal's coat in tip top shape.
