Dalmatian

Dalmatian


Height: 19-24 inches

Weight: 45-65 lbs.

Life Span: 10-12 yrs.

Breed Group: Companion Dogs

Overview
Dalmatians are loving with their families, but because they can be very stubborn, they must be socialized and begin obedience classes early. Most dalmatians are aloof and wary of and/or territorial with strangers.

They get along with other dogs and most other small animals, though birds and squirrels may look like dinner to them, so they must always be walked on a leash and exercised in a secured area.

Dalmatians have a lot of energy and do best in the suburbs or country, where they have room to run around.

Appearance
The dalmatian's coat is short, dense, fine, sleek, glossy, and close-lying. Coat color is pure white with black or liver spots.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Dalmatians shed constantly and so should be brushed daily. They need vigorous exercise and extensive training to avoid serious behavior problems.

Origins
Brought to England during the Crusades from the Arabic coastal area of Dalmatia, the dalmatian is thought to have a hunting pointer in its background, but British sportsmen discovered it was better at guarding its owner's horses, carriages, and coach inhabitants than hunting. It is best known for its work as a firehouse dog.

Special Alerts
It is especially important to obtain a dalmatian from a reputable breeder as many are poorly bred individuals. Dalmatians are not suitable for inexperienced owners.

Breed-related health concerns: deafness, bladder stones, allergies.
