I have to say that this dog is intense, I inherited her from my wife. She is super muscular and requires constant attention and activity, which is not so bad given all her good perks.
She makes for a terrific running companion, and she is a very friendly and proud dog. Has to come with us EVERYWHERE, but loves to settle in and relax in social settings. She is great with my cat, and she is great with kids. Despite the rumors that dalmatians can get a little cranky, this one is super docile and has never bitten or seriously warned anyone.
She is probably the smartest dog I have ever encountered. She will learn a trick instantly, and loves to please. Loves to sniff and find hidden objects. She also learned to play with some toys with her paw, taking in her new play skills from the cat.
GOOD: Smart, fun, active, docile, protective of family, good watch dog
BAD: Requires a lot of attention, needs to come everywhere, a little head strong and can be stubborn if communication is lacking or she doesn't like the task (panics when she gets her nails cut)
