Bullmatian Characteristics

The Bullmation is a very unique-looking, beautiful hybrid mix between a Bulldog and – you guessed it – a Dalmation. Kind, energetic, and intelligent, these dogs receive some of the best traits from each parent. Bullmations are usually very loving and friendly around children and other animals and are a top choice for a devoted household companion.

Fast Facts

  • Energy High
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Stubborn

Standing between 11-24 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 40-65 pounds, the Bullmation is a larger domestic breed. They require relatively little grooming, and a couple of brushings a week will typically suffice. Because of their mixed heritage, they are likely to have the spots of the Dalmation, but these spots are often colors other than the iconic black spots we've all seen. You can see them in all sorts of looks!

These dogs have higher than average energy levels, and will likely be up for all the playtime or walks you can offer. Because of this, they don't do well in apartments and would be happier in a house with a backyard. They are playful and love spending time with their family. 

While Bullmatians are highly loyal, some of them can develop a stubborn attitude from time to time, thanks to their intelligence. It’s key to train and socialize them correctly from an early age–and you might need a little extra dose of patience at first. Once they learn to feel safe with you and to see you as the leader, they’re incredibly devoted and faithful. Be sure to keep an eye on your Bullmation at the dog park, as they can be wary of dogs they've never met, and may allow their protective instinct to get the best of them.

How dog-friendly is Texas?

We’ve looked at several studies to evaluate where states rank in pet-friendliness and safety, and the great state of Texas is basically right in the middle. Texas has some really excellent places to raise your dogs, with a few key drawbacks you might want to consider.


Pawsafe ranks Texas 30th in terms of pet-friendliness. In a similar study, Safewise ranked Texas as the 28th most pet-friendly state. These studies examine numerous factors, including pet care costs, walkability, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws. All these factors help us see how happy and safe our pets and the animals around them can be.


Texas has a relatively high percentage of pet-friendly rentals at 29%. That puts the state in the top five for pet-friendly rentals. In fact, 43.4% of Texas residents own a dog – above the national average of 40%. Overall, Texas has a slightly above average pet ownership rate of 58%. Texas clearly loves its pets!

The best cities for pet ownership in Texas

Texas is a big place – so what about individual cities? WalletHub analyzed the most pet-friendly cities in the United States and Texas cities performed pretty well! 


WalletHub rated Austin, Plano, Fort Worth, Houston, and Corpus Christi the most pet-friendly cities, at 15th, 20th, 35th, 36th, and 39th out of 100 cities around the U.S.


A few other Texas cities rank further down the list. El Paso, Lubbock, San Antonio, and Dallas ranked 52nd, 55th, 71st, and 72nd, respectively. Irving, near Dallas, has a relatively high concentration of dog parks, with 1.2 parks per 100,000 residents. They tied for 40th among major cities.

Austin ranks most pet-friendly city in Texas

Austin ranks high in almost every study as a happy place for dogs. SmartAsset found Austin to be the 19th most pet-friendly city in the country.


Some of Austin’s notable qualities included over 513 dog-friendly restaurants. Austin also has the most dog-friendly shopping centers of any city, with 28. There are 65 pet stores and offices for every 10,000 establishments in the state.


The Trust for Public Land (TPL) found that Austin has the 24th highest number of dog parks per capita, with 1.8 dog parks per 100,000 residents. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Texas

We’re sad to sy that in 2019, Texas ranked second in shelter pet deaths and euthanasia. The state had previously ranked first for shelter pet deaths, so at least it is improving. Plus, Texas saved 44,601 more animals in 2020 than in 2019. 


The state has an overall save rate of 81.6%. A 90% save rate is required to be a no-kill state. We’re happy to see more and more movement toward protecting the animal community and placing pups in happy homes.
