To adopt an adult Dalmatian or not to adopt an adult Dalmatian!
There are some good reasons to adopt an adult Dalmatian rather than a puppy. Some breeders have adult Dalmatians ready for adoption. The breeders will ask you some questions to make sure the Dal will go to a suitable home. Dalmatian “rescue” associations always have dogs in need of loving homes. See the links below for Dalmatian rescue organizations.
Dalmatian puppies are the cutest puppies in the world, but PLEASE do your research. Make sure it’s the right breed for you, and make sure it will fit in with your family and lifestyle. Puppies are intuitive and know whether or not they are wanted. Dalmatian puppies flourish in almost any type of home, but remember they are active dogs and need proper exercise. Before adding a Dalmatian puppy to your family, learn as much as you can about its temperament.
The Dalmatian’s ancestry is more disputed than any other breed of dog.
It’s a Mystery
The breed’s ancestry can be traced back thousands of years. However, no particular country or place can be unquestionably identified as the site of its ancestry. Virtually the only fact that researchers can come to an agreement on is that the breed has been around for a long time and has remained practically unchanged.
The Dalmatian’s temperament can be described easily.
A Dog on the Go
He is lively, full of energy, and raring to go. He doesn’t care where he goes. He just wants to go go, go. He does not like to sit around all day with nothing to do. He especially doesn’t like to be left alone in the yard all day with no human company.
