Norwich Terrier and Cairn Terrier - what is the difference

Norwich Terrier - a rare breed of dogs. Very often people are confused with Norwich still rare for one terrier- Cairn terrier. And indeed, at first glance looks very similar to these breeds. Moreover, in some European countries for breeding Norwich Terriers were used Cairn Terriers. We are don’t like this too much. This is very bad for the breed Norwich terrier. We are a pure-breeding. Our Norwich Terriers are not among their ancestors Cairn terriers.
