Whitney, 2 years old (Dalmatian, Pointer and Greyhound mix)
While Dalmatians are wonderful companions for their owners, they are usually very wary of strangers. They aren't ideal for children but can be very loving with adults. Extensive training is necessary to have an obedient Dalmatian. Dalmatians have special exercise needs and need lots of daily opportunities to be active. They should be brushed daily because of excessive shedding.
