Is the Dalmatian / Golden Retriever Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Goldmation

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Goldmation is a cross between a pure Golden Retriever and a pure Dalmatian, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This so-called designer hybrid may be intended to moderate some of the purebred Dalmatian's health problems by blending it with an unrelated breed, but it really isn't a common mix.

Appearance / health:
They are produced by crossing two different breeds, individuals will always vary. However, they are big dogs that generally resemble their parents in size and physique.

Regular grooming and an occasional bath suffice to keep the their coat in good condition.

They do best with a good amount of exercise. They love walking and romping with their owner, and enjoy games such as fetching a ball or Frisbee.

Behavior / temperament:
They are intelligent and loyal dogs that make fine pets. They love to play with their owners, and will happily fetch a ball or a stick tossed for them. They can be easily trained and quickly learn to do tricks and play games.

Goldmations respond well to early training and may achieve a high level of obedience.

They are energetic dogs that are, nevertheless, quite well behaved. They do not bark without reason.
