We got Pongo when I was just 4 years old, right when we moved to Texas, my brother & sister were just babies. He was great to grow up with, and great with our little friends who would come over. When we first got him, we were living in town. Later, when we moved to the country on some acreage, he was a great guard/watch dog. Anytime there were snakes or anything out of the ordinary, he would bark & bark & bark wherever the 'predator' was. My dad really appreciated the help, haha! He was very playful, and always a great companion. He rarely ran off when we moved to the country, if he did, it was no more than a couple hundred feet from the house, watching the cows, etc.
He was always 'smiling', if you've ever owned/been around a Dalmatian, you know what I'm referring to. He was a great buddy for my dad, and a great 'sibling' to myself, and my brother & sister.
I would recommend a dalmatian to really anyone, they're great companions.
