Im in love which my little puppy
The Dalmatian is a breed with a purpose. Originally bred as "Coach” or carriage dogs, these dogs are also well known as hunting dogs, firehouse dogs, and circus performers. With focused obedience training and early socialization, these dogs can also make fantastic household companions and friends to your children and other pets.
Instantly recognizable from film and tv, the Dalmatian is a breed with an iconic white coat full of black spots and a body full of energy and determination. These dogs were originally bred to run next to carriages as a form of protection, and this skill helped translate them to the firehouse dogs you know today. This endurance also allows them to excel at flyball and agility games. If you're looking for a companion who is always ready to join you on a run or bicycle ride, this is your dog.
The Dalmation is a medium-large dog, standing around 19-24 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 48-55 pounds. Along with their highly active bodies, Dalmations have highly active brains! These incredibly smart dogs need obedience training while they’re puppies to establish rules for behavior, or they will assume the role of alpha and attempt to run things. Once trained, though, their intelligence makes them wonderful lifelong companions.
The breed is also predisposed to deafness. This condition is hereditary, and all Dalmatian bloodlines can pass along deafness to their puppies. Around eight percent of Dalmatians are born entirely deaf, and 22-24% are born with hearing in one ear only. Trust us, though, it won’t make you love them any less.

Is Seattle a good place for pet ownership?
WalletHub analyzed the 100 largest cities in the United States to find the most pet-friendly city. Their research looked at a variety of factors, with their primary focus on pet budget, health and wellness, and outdoor pet-friendly activities.
In the study, Wallethub graded Seattle as the 17th most pet-friendly city. The city performed well for pet health and wellness, and outdoor pet-friendliness, ranking 18th and 11th respectively. Pet care is more expensive in Seattle, so the city ended up in 70th place for pet budget. The study also found Seattle to have the highest number of dog-friendly restaurants per capita.
