The Dalmatian

The only spotted breed, the Dalmatian is alert and active, possessing great endurance, speed, and intelligence. Their working and sporting heritage makes them suitable as both a family pet or performance animal, and they are often found in the show, obedience and agility rings, or galloping alongside a horse as a coach dog in "road trials." Their short coat is white with black or liver (brown) spots.

History

Spotted dogs have appeared throughout history in Europe, Asia, and Africa, credited with a dozen nationalities and as many native names. The dog we know today as the Dalmatian has been a dog of war, a draft dog, shepherd, ratter, fire-apparatus follower, firehouse mascot, bird dog, trail hound, and retriever. Most importantly, he is the original and only coaching dog. His affinity for horses remains a basic instinct to this day and the breed is a natural follower and guardian of the horse-drawn vehicle.

Temperament

The fun-loving, people-oriented Dalmatian thrives in a family environment. The breed's short coat sheds almost year-round, but regular brushing helps minimize the shedding. The Dalmatian is great with kids but needs a little work with other dogs. It's best to introduce the Dalmatian as a puppy to new environments.
