|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.
