Overview
The Norfolk Terrier originated in England. They are loveable and sturdy and are among the smallest Terriers in the working group. The Norfolk Terrier is an affectionate breed that does not exhibit a nervous or disagreeable nature. The Norfolk Terrier is closely related to the Norwich Terrier with the most noticeable difference being the shape of the ears.
Character
The Norfolk Terrier is busy and curious. They are hardy and compact, fearless but not aggressive. They carry themselves with importance and self-confidence. They are gregarious, loyal, and in seemingly constant motion.
Temperament
The Norfolk Terrier is always ready to play and loves children. They are generally good with other dogs and cats, but may view smaller pets as prey. In some cases they may exhibit jealousy. They are amiable companions who enjoy being in a family environment. They possess sensitivity and may be stubborn. The Norfolk Terrier is a relentless and tireless worker, full of spirit. They are good watchdogs that will bark to alert their family to danger or visitors.
Care
The Norfolk Terrier requires daily brushing. They are a non-shedding breed and do not shed their coats naturally. Therefore, a professional grooming session to strip the coat twice a year is highly recommended. This allows the new weatherproof coat to come through which is an important feature of this breed. Norfolk Terriers highly prone to a genetic, life threatening heart abnormality. They are also susceptible to genetic eye problems, hip dysplasia, and patella luxation.
Coat
The Norfolk Terrier has a protective weatherproof coat that is harsh, broken, and wiry. The outer coat lies close and flat to the body. The undercoat is soft in texture. The colors of the coat include red, wheaten, black and tan. The Norfolk Terrier is non-shedding.
Training
The Norfolk Terrier can be difficult to housetrain. Crate training is the preferred method. As with any Terrier breed, firmness, fairness, and consistency are the keys to success. They are quick learners who are eager to please. Norfolk Terriers are adept in the areas of learning and performing tricks, agility, and obedience.
Activity
The Norfolk Terrier loves adventure and play. They enjoy vigorous walks on a secure leash, a refreshing swim, or a short jog. They thrive on activity. Norfolk Terriers derive great pleasure from romping in a securely fenced yard with their family. If they are left alone outside for extended periods of time they will become bored and destructive. They can adapt to apartment living provided they are given sufficient exercise and stimulation.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Norfolk Terrier puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

The Norfolk Terrier is known to be good with children. But like any relationship between a dog and a child, the interactions should always be supervised. Children need to be taught to be respectful of dogs and puppies, while puppies and dogs need to be trained to be respectful of children. If the puppy grows up with the other dog and is well socialized, then normally there is no problem. The Norfolk Terrier loves to dig. The best thing to do is to get a sand box, or make one and have a designated digging area for your dog so you don't have to worry. Or, do not allow the dog outside free-range so that he/she can not dig where you don't want them too. A groomer can help you with the coat, but in general, a 10 minute brushing a day or every two days is good.

A Terrier will be a Terrier. They were bred for hunting vermin, so you must remember that they have the natural instinct to go after smaller animals. But, if you socialize your dog to other animals and train him/her as a puppy, you can counter those instincts and normally will have no issues.

If she has mange, what you are doing will not help. She needs to go to a vet A.S.A.P. Contact the owner's and get them to take her to the vet. If they refuse, then contact your local Animal Control to report neglect/abuse. Mange can kill a dog, so she needs treatment NOW!

Going online to the AKC website and looking for a reputable and qualified breeder will be able to give you that number. However, please note that good breeders have a wait-list and you may have to wait for a puppy. But waiting for a healthy, stable, well-bred puppy is much better then going to a back yard breeder.

Your puppy is WAY too young to have left it's mother. You can not train a baby, so don't expect to train a puppy that is too young to have left it's mother. Contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer for training classes.

Is it like "yodeling"? Our Norfolk Terrier does this and I think its so cute. She does it when she's feeling something intensely I think. Like when we all come out in the morning and she's happy to see us, or when she's anticipating something, like going for a walk.
