With a lineage that supposedly traces back to a region of Croatia, the dalmation is a medium-sized breed of domestic dog best known for the white-with-black-spots coat common to this breed. Dalmatians typically weigh 36 - 71 pounds have a lifespan of 10 - 13 years.
Dalmations are a popular breed for families and dog enthusiasts. The breed has high guarding instincts and are excellent hunters. Dalmatians are high-energy dogs with a playful disposition. They are particularly noted to get along well with other animals. It was this trait that led to the breed being used in conjunction with horse-drawn fire carriages in the 1800's, acting as guides and guards for the fire crews. They were so successful in this capacity that the breed is now popularly connected with fire departments in most people's imaginations. Dalmatians are genetically pre-disposed to deafness (only 70% of all dalmatians have normal hearing), and are high-energy, high-activity dogs, so anyone considering welcoming this breed into their home should be willing to make the necessary commitment to this challenging breed.
