Introduction

General information

  • Although thought to have originated from Dalmatia as the name suggests, there is some evidence that it actually came from India and was brought to ancient Greece by Indian traders.
  • This dog has served as everything from a retriever and bird dog, to a sheep herder, circus performer and carriage dog.
  • An exuberant, friendly dog that is suitable to the urban environment, is good with children and needs little grooming, but it is not best suited to hotter climates and does require a lot of exercise.
