Easily trainable, these little terriers are extraordinarily active, brave, and loving. They are great with children and are an easy fit in any housing situation. They love a good game of fetch, and are always ready for a game. When left up to their own devices they often develop a barking or digging problem. Also watch out for “small dog syndrome,” by maintaining consistent leadership. They can become overprotective and jealous if not socialized early.
The Norfolk Terrier can be found in wheaten, red, black, tan and grizzle. Some white markings are seen in the breed but are not desirable in show dogs.
