Best Breed Ever! Dalmatians
Dalmatians used to help clear the way for horse-drawn firetrucks and had an especially
close relationship with the horses they protected. Their exact history is unknown, though they
have been depicted running behind chariots in ancient Egyptian tomb paintings.
George Washington was one of the first breeders of dalmatians in the U.S.!
Dalmatians are born completely white and acquire spots as they mature – even in their mouth!
Dalmatians love to run and are great jogging companions!
Dalmatians are sturdy, healthy dogs, but some are prone to deafness and bladder stones.
Dalmatian coats are short and dirt-resistant, but can make the dogs sensitive to hot and
cold temperatures! “Are Dalmatians for me? – They are very smart
and do well with firm training – They don’t need much grooming, but they
do shed moderately – They are medium-sized
– They will need lots of room to run” “Are Dalmatians for me? – They are a great
pet for active families – They are extremely energetic and must be
well-exercised – They live about 10-13 years”
