Norwich Terriers are small but very cute. 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 with the characteristic satellite-like swiveling erect Terrier ears.
The Norwich Terrier is an undemanding dog to feed with no special dietary requirements; and they can generally be relied on to have a hearty appetite.
Although the hard adult coat doesn’t appear until the puppy becomes an adolescent (which means terrier puppies are soft and fluffy), you'd better develop some regular grooming habits at an early age, as without starting early, although the smallest terrier around, they can object quite strongly and convincingly to being restrained due to their natural independent streak.
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.
