Can CH Echoviews NU Celestial Opus
An affectionate, velcro companion with a happy, silly temperament. Handler focused, with intelligence, drive and athleticism. Aloof with strangers (doesn't need to be everyone's friend) but loves children and adults alike once known. Prefers her own pack, needs time to warm up to other canines.
Because deafness is so high in Dalmatians it is important to have their hearing tested. Puppies without hearing in one or both ears can still be great companions, they require extra attention and training and therefore extra considerations are taken when choosing their new home.
OFA HIP DYSPLASIA
A problem that is common with larger breeds, it is a hereditary problem that causes severe pain and problems with walking or running, two of the many things Dalmatians love to do.
Good to Know
Iris sphincter dysplasia (ISD) has become a common disorder found in Dalmatians and should not be carried on to future generations.
