Overview
The Norwich Terrier originated in Great Britain in the 19th century. They are one of the smallest Terriers. This breed is low, compact, and strong. The Norwich was bred to hunt rabbits and hares in small packs. Therefore, they tend to be more social than other breeds of Terrier.
Character
The Norwich Terrier is loyal, active, curious, and bold. They are a rugged breed full of spirit with a loving heart. They are fearless and assertive, but are never aggressive or irritable. The Norwich thrives on companionship.
Temperament
The Norwich Terrier is extremely intelligent. Although they prefer human companions and are good with well-behaved children, they are accepting of other dogs. However, they may view cats as prey, so must be introduced to them at an early age. They require early exposure and socialization or they may be wary or timid when they are in unfamiliar situations. The Norwich Terrier loves to be the center of attention, and this spunky busybody loves to be a part of absolutely everything that is happening in their surroundings.
Care
The Norwich Terrier's coat is easy to care for. Daily brushing and combing is important. They require minimal clipping, and should only be bathed when absolutely necessary. In most cases all that is needed is a dry shampooing. Special attention should be given to this breed when they are shedding. They may need to have their coat stripped by a professional groomer a couple of times a year. The Norwich Terrier is a hardy and long-lived breed, but they may suffer from genetic eye disease and back problems.
Coat
The Norwich Terrier has a straight, hard and wiry outer coat, which lies close to the body. They have a thick undercoat, which makes this breed almost weatherproof. The coat of the Norwich comes in such colors as red, wheaten, black and tan. They are low shedding.
Training
The Norwich Terrier is quick to learn, but sometimes has a mind of their own. They may also exhibit a stubborn streak and can be difficult to housetrain. They respond best to firm and consistent rules and guidance. They love to learn tricks given the right method of motivation for them. The Norwich does best when given obedience training.
Activity
The Norwich Terrier is energetic and loves to go on walks or short jogs. However, they must always remain secured on a leash. They do not have a good sense of direction and will be off and running after anything they consider prey. They are a true companion breed who much prefers to be inside with their family. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. They will dig and bark if left alone outside without stimulation. The Norwich will adapt to apartment living provided they are given sufficient exercise.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Norwich 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.

It is a very long time to expect your dog not to go to the bathroom while you are gone. It is a good idea to either come back at lunch time or to hire a dog walker to let your dog out int he afternoon to pee.

If the house-keeper can let the dog out to pee, then that is fine. If not, then no.

Yes the Norwich Terrier would be OK with this as long as you introduce him to the cats at a young age.

I would if you have another dog in the house but, if you don't have another dog in the house it will not be able to stay alone for that long if you do not have another dog in the house.

Not not at first but they will bark if something is wrong. Is someone is hanging around or they are afraid of something. This is the only time my Norwich barks, but otherwise she doesn't bark at all.

We have two Norwich Terrier's - Roscoe is quiet unless he knows we are getting ready to go for a walk - Lucy barks at everything. Given they are brother/sister, I would say it is the luck of the draw.
