Dalmatian is a “brachycephalic” (flat nosed) breed with a sweet and easy going personality. They are often referred to as the “American Gentleman” because of their domestic heritage and gentle disposition along with their black & white markings which often resemble a tuxedo.

Dalmatians can weigh anywhere from less than 10 to over 25 lbs. The AKC Dalmatian breed standard does not recognize dogs under 10 lbs or over 25 lbs and these dogs are disqualified from entering AKC Conformation shows. Fortunately, there are no weight restrictions for entering AKC performance events such as Obedience, Rally and Agility where Dalmatians of all sizes do very well.

Dalmatians come in three recognized colors: black & white, seal & white, and brindle & white, with specific breed-standard markings. Browns, reds, fawns, whites, grays and blues, which some unscrupulous breeders advertise as “rare” are indeed rare only because responsible breeders avoid such colors. These non-standard colorings are a result of a recessive or a diluted gene and are commonly linked to health and behavior problems. Complete and regular veterinary screenings are essential for these off-colored Dalmatians. Though some may make wonderful pets, these Dalmatians should be spayed/neutered and should never be bred.

Dalmatian puppies are hard to come by, especially from a reputable breeder. They often have long waiting lists for puppies. Dalmatians routinely require a caesarian section to give birth. As a result, the females cannot be bred as frequently as other breeds. The number in a litter also tends to be small and a litter of one is not uncommon. It doesn’t matter if you are interested in “only a pet”. “Pet” puppies come from the same litter as “show” puppies.

Not much. Sometimes a breeder will sell a puppy as a pet because of minor cosmetic reasons, such as the size of its ears, or a marking that may not be as balanced. A breeder might keep a puppy or two from a litter that best matches the Dalmatian breed standard as a potential show prospects and place the rest as pets to non-show homes.

A well bred puppy from a reputable breeder tends to be expensive. However, the cost often means that you are getting a puppy from a dog that has had all of its genetic testing and proper health screenings. You will also benefit from the knowledge of an experienced breeder who has been involved with the breed for many years.

A puppy will be with you for a long time, as much as 15+ years. You are responsible for its well being for its entire life. Owning a dog is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Do you have the time to devote to your dog? Can you afford the extra expense of owning a dog? Dalmatian Terriers are wonderful pets, but they are not for everyone. Please do your homework and research the breed to get the facts and then make the right choice for you and your Friendly.
