About Norfolk Terrier
Country of Origin, History of the breed
The Norfolk Terrier comes
from the Norfolk County of England, where
it was originally developed as a small ratting
dog. They were later used on fox hunts to
chase foxes out of their holes so the hunt
could be continued.
In England at the turn of
the century, working terriers from stables
in Cambridge, Market Harborough, and Norwich,
were used by Frank "Roughrider"
Jones to develop a breed recognized by the
English Kennel Club in 1932 as the Norwich
Terrier. In the early days there was diversity
in type, size, color, coat, and ear carriage.
Correct color and ear carriage were constantly
argued. Originally the Norwich Terrier and
Norfolk Terrier were a single breed.
The main factor of difference
being that the Norwich Terrier has more rounded
prick ears, while the Norfolk Terrier has more angular
dropped ears. The breeds separated in England in
1964 and in the AKC in 1979.
