Fancy Frances

Frances is a 5-year-old Norwich Terrier, who will be staying the weekend with us. Today was her assessment day, and she did just fine upstairs with the other little guys. She is very friendly, and enjoyed being here in our pack. Although she wasn't interested in the ball during ball-time, she was definitely interested in the dogs chasing it! You can see her getting a feel for it in this video clip:

I have never met a Norwich Terrier before, so I did a little research into the breed (I love all the different dogs and cool breeds I get to meet working here!). These compact terriers have existed since the late 19th century, and were bred in England to hunt small vermin (such as moles, rats, snakes, etc.) but also make great family pets. They are also one of the smallest working terriers, and are well known for their ability to adapt to different situations. Learn more about these spunky little dogs at

Have a great night!


P.S.-- For some reason, YouTube recommended this hilarious video after I watched "Frances' First Day." I think you will get a kick out of it! E.T. the walrus practices making different sounds at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium.
