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.

Does your Norwich Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Norwich Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I go to school from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM and will have my Norwich Terrier in the house. Will it be ok for that period of time?

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 in the afternoon to pee.

Can my Norwich Terrier be left alone at home from 7:30 A.M to 4:30 P.M? I have a housekeeper that will visit the dog for a few minutes a day.

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

My neighbors have 2 cats which come in our garden and have a Bulldog/Pug which doesn't come in our garden. Would a Norwich Terrier be okay with this?

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