As a pet sitter I have cared for two Miniature Dalmatians ~ they are both about 40#, and are super cute. As adults, they actually still look like puppies because of their small stature. Dalmatians are sweet/fun/energetic dogs. A little slower to 'learn' than some other breeds, but they eventually get there. They can be hyper if not trained well and walked or worked to get that energy out. They shed a lot, are prone to urinary tract infections, as well as deafness. One of the ones I care for is deaf. He never has a clue when I walk into the house, if he is sleeping, and then gets excited when we wakes up to see me! :) I think they are really good dogs, I've had great times with them, and would recommend them to families with a lot of energy for training and play time!!
