Hur ser man att det är
en Fluffy-/Bambam-päls?
När valpen är liten ser pälsen ut som om man hällt matolja på den.
Blank och slät.
Det som gäller är att dessa pälsar måste klippas!
Det blir väldigt varm för hunden då pälsen är väldigt tjock.
Man kan goggla för att få mer information om dessa pälsar!

Det är inte lätt att hitta info om bam bam-/fluffy-fenomenet men
i Joan Reads bok - The Norfolk Terrier, första utgåvan 1989 -
kan man läsa följande:

"coats: "Fluffies" or "Hairy Bears"
On rare occasions a whelp appears in a litter whose Commonly called "hairy bears" or "fluffies" these puppies soft coats can be parted to reveal the tender skin. Despite efforts to eliminate this particular coat type, it still turns up periodically in Norfolk and Norwich Terriers.
Originally, fluffies were thought to be linked to the black and tan color pattern, perhaps inherited from an early Yorkshire Terrier cross. Certainly, we still see occasional traces of coats that may be long, flat and silky, or harsh with vestiges of silky hairs in their furnishings. Others may have traces of a topknot on the forehead.
Unlike Yorkies, however, fluffies have a coat texture similar to todays larger softcoated terriers that share with Norfolk common ancestry from early Irish Terriers. Whatever their origin fluffies have been recorded since Norwich (both drop ear and prick ear) were recognized in 1932. There is good reason to belive they are descendants of either the influential black and tan sire Pepper (thus the once-presumed color link) or the unregistered Midge, dam of Tobit and granddam of Ch Biffin and of Peggotty and Witherslack Jane. At any rate, soft and silky coats were both considered a serious - even disqualifying - fault under the 1947 American Standard.
The simple recessive gene that controls hairy bears is often carried undetected for generations by hard-coated parents. Fluffies, while adorable, are severely handicapped if they like to hunt among briars and burrs. Soft coats require regular grooming and monthly haircuts for comfort and health. Since fluffies are capable of producing normal coats and are so appealing, it seems unlikely the gene will ever become extinct.
In the distant past, some of the breeds most personable characters produced fluffies. Today, after a long hiatus, the number of hairy bears is again on the rise, thanks in part to tow popular, typey international champion sires - one a Norfolk and the other a Norwich."
