Characteristics of the Norfolk Terrier
According to the standards set by American Kennel Club, Norfolk Terriers come in colors such as red, wheat, black, brown or grizzle. Their coat is commonly straight, stiff, with the fur around the neck thicker than other parts. The fur on their ears and head is short and smooth, except around the muzzle and above the eyes, where the fur is slightly longer and looks like eyebrows and beard.
The Norfolk Terrier is one of the world’s smallest hounds with a height of 8 to 10 inches (20-25 cm) and a weight of 8-12 lbs (3.5 to 5.5 kg).
Norfolk Terrier’s eyes are oval and may be black or dark brown. Their ears are medium in size, V-shaped, dropping down to the cheekbones. Although the Norfolk is small, their teeth are extremely sharp and strong with remarkable bite strength, which is a common feature of a hound. Their bites can cause serious injuries to the victim.
Norfolk Terriers are stable and lively. They often have a cheerful attitude and appear to be trusted friends to children if grown up together. However, if you want to bring an adult Norfolk home to live with children, it might not be a good idea.
If left alone outside for a long time or not getting enough exercise, Norfolks will bark and dig around. Norfolks should be kept an eye on when in the public because their powerful hunting instincts are easily triggered by squirrels, rabbits or other small animals.
