My sister made a special request today for a Dalmatians post. This is another breed that I don’t see very often. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I saw one in person.
- Weight: Big range from 35 – 70 pounds.
- The pups are born with plain white coats, and their first spots usually appear within a week after birth! After about a month, they have most of their spots, although they continue to gain more throughout their life.
- They shed considerably all year.
- They are intelligent, playful, loyal, and active dogs. This dog is for someone who is more active because they will need exercise.
- A genetic predisposition for deafness is a serious health problem for Dalmatians; only about 70% have normal hearing!
