The Norfolk belongs to the springer branch of the family, and is rather a leggy dog, of an average weight of about 401b., and generally liver and white in colour.

This variety is stated to have been produced by a cross with a black and tan terrier, and was often so marked, and was bred and kept by a late Duke of Norfolk.

The specimens I have seen at Eastern Counties shows, and represented to be pure Norfolk, were free from tan markings.

They are stated to be very staunch dogs, and, from their height and strength, useful in high turnips and other cover, in beating which a smaller and weaker dog would be lost sight of and soon tire.

Except that they are considerably higher on the leg, the ears long and lobular, deeply fringed with soft hair, the description of the modern spaniel applies to them also.
