The Dalmatian in this video is falling asleep on her friend after a long day at the dog show. Her name is Hazel, and she is 11 years old. It is sweet that Hazel is in her friend’s arms, and when she starts nodding into dreamland, she leans into her friend’s face.
Dalmatians have become more popular after the movie “101 Dalmatians.” Many people might have gotten a Dalmatian puppy thinking that it’s going to be like the ones they see in the movie. Sometimes dogs of all breeds end up in shelters or as rescues because their former owners may not know what is involved in caring for the dog. Or perhaps the dog’s owner have passed on, and there is no one to “inherit” them. If you are able to adopt an adult, you will know exactly what you are getting because their personality has already been formed.
Characteristics of Dalmatians
The Dalmatian is born to run, according to Dog Time. If left to himself, he would run for days. His energy is unlimited.
He loves attention. And he loves your companionship. They actually pine if you leave him by himself for too long. He want to be right there in the family activities. He wants to sleep where you sleep.
He is humorous and likes to make you laugh. He has a strong desire to please you, so he is easy to train. Just provide positive encouragement.
He is very alert to what’s going on around him, so he makes a good watch dog. Older children appreciate him as playmate because he just loves activities. The smaller ones may need to watch out for his swishing tail. Remember this is an active and energetic dog. Dalmatians get along with cats and other dogs.
