Norwich Terriers come in all shades of red, wheaten or black and tan. Their terrier origins are betrayed when they chase small animals as if they were prey! They live for longer than average (around 12 to 16 years) and love the company of humans. For this reason, it is advisable not to keep them in kennel houses or place them in other situations where they would be kept away from humans as it could distress them greatly.

Norwich Terriers have had a history of tail docking. In the US, when they are entered as show dogs, a dock tail is preferred, whereas in other countries, it is illegal to dock non working dogs.
