All Dog Breeds >>Norfolk Terrier
A native of England, the Norfolk used to be considered the same breed as the Norwich Terrier. Comfortable working alone or in packs, it was developed as a barnyard ratter and used to bolt vermin such as fox from their dens during hunts. In 1979 the drop eared variety became known as the Norfolk Terrier and the prick eared version the Norwich Terrier. Today, the two breeds have slight differences and different breed standards.
