Brown spotted Dalmatian was a nightmare

Our brown spotted Dalmatian was a complete nightmare. We thought that this was a fairly laid back breed, but despite constant attention at home, he required almost 24/7 stimuli, which was exhausting. This dog had an enormous amount of energy and I recommend that anyone considering this type if dog to not have other out of the home commitments in order to amuse him. He was very high strung, hard to train, jumped on top of people, and ended up attacking and killing my cat.
I don't recommend this type of dog due to its breeding issues such as hip problems and mental issues. Eventually, he ended up with hip displasia and passed away at age 10.
