From 1964 in Britain, and from 1979 in the United States, the prick-eared Norwich Terrier has been classified separately from the otherwise identical drop-eared Norfolk Terrier. The Norwich Terrier is named after the city of Norwich, which lies in the county of Norfolk in the East Anglian area of eastern England. The Norwich appears to have originated in East Anglia,and probably includes Cairn, Border, and Irish Terrier blood. This hardy and adaptable terrier is usually good with children. It enjoys regular exercise and needs only a daily brushing for its role as housepet and some trimming in preparation for show.
