Dalmatian Mix

When two different breeds are purposely bred together with the intention of producing puppies that share the traits of both parent breeds, a hybrid is created. Hybrid mix breeds have become increasingly popular in recent years. A Dalmatian mix must have a Dalmatian parent. The Dalmatian dates back centuries. There is no evidence to confirm that the breed originated in Dalmatia, as was previously believed. Spotted dogs did travel with nomadic groups across Europe, Asia and Africa. Today's Dalmatian was actually developed in England. In 1888, the American Kennel Club recognized the Dalmatian as a member of the non-sporting group.

Some physical characteristics that a Dalmatian parent may pass down to a Dalmatian mix include a large, athletic body that stands 20 to 22 inches tall at the shoulder. Dalmatians have a short coat that is typically white with black or liver spots. They have long tails that they happily carry upward, and their ears hang downward. Personality: A Dalmatian mix may inherit some of the Dalmatian parent's happy, playful disposition. Dalmatians are highly sociable, and they crave interaction with their families, especially when the interaction includes physical activities. Dalmatians have a high energy level. Dalmatians are excellent family companions. They get along well with children and other pets.

Fine

Dalmatians require minimal grooming, but their short coats shed moderately. If your Dalmatian mix shares the Dalmatian parent's short coat, use a grooming mitt or brush weekly to collect the dead hairs, reduce shedding in the home and maintain the coat's overall shiny luster. Ears that hang downward should be inspected weekly, and they should be kept clean and dry to prevent ear infections. Brush any dog's teeth at least three times a week to maintain ideal oral and overall health.
