My hyperactive Dalmatian

Dalmatians have always caught my eye as a dog lover because they're so beautiful. Yet, owning one was a completely different story. Toby was the most hyperactive/ destructive dog I have ever had, hence why I had to give him to a friend after only 2 years. He lived outside and would wreck everything garden hose, plants, outdoor furniture, you name it. He was so hyperactive that he would jump on people as soon as they opened the patio door. Therefore, I don't think its a good dog for children because they can be very overpowering. Very cute dogs, especially when they are puppies but they require a lot of patience since they seek a lot of attention from people.
