Description:  The Dalmatian is a distinctively spotted dog; poised and alert; strong, muscular and active; free of shyness; intelligent in expression. He is capable of great endurance, combined with speed.  A friendly, outgoing dog,  he will make a excellent companion for anyone who has the time to exercise and train him.  He will bond very closely with his owner, more so than other breeds and will exhibit separation anxiety when left alone. Dalmatian puppies are born all white and begin to develop their spots by ten to fourteen days.
History:   His name is taken from Dalmatia, part of the former Yugoslavia.  Coming from Dalmatia, a region on the Adriatic Sea north of Albania.  It was in Britain that he became well established as a dog of the British aristocracy, running alongside their horse-drawn carriages.  He has been used as a watchdog, draft dog, shepherd, ratter, bird dog, trail hound, retriever, circus and stage performer and of course as a firehouse mascot.  His registration doubled following the 1959 film "101 Dalmatians."
