Norfolks are the smallest terrier, put make up for size with large personalities and loyalty. Don’t be fooled by the cute and cuddly breed, Norfolks are terriers after all and will push your luck and get into mischief whenever possible. They are often referred to as the teddybear dog. They usually come in red wheaten color but also appear in dark brown and black. Review the photos section to see some photos of this beloved breed.
