15 Dalmatian Dogs That Will Brighten Your Day Immediately

The Dalmatian is known as an athletic and capable dog and is well placed with an average life expectancy of 10 to 13 years. Despite this, individual specimens of this breed can suffer from certain breed-specific health issues. Dogs with a high white coat have a higher likelihood of becoming deaf in one or both ears during their lifetime. The triggering gene for this connection between coat color and hearing has not yet been found, which makes breeding selection difficult.

#1 Another hereditary defect is the Dalmatian syndrome, which describes a metabolic disease with frequent urinary stone formation.

#3 Dalmatian leukodystrophy is a rare, hereditary disease of the central nervous system that occurs as early as puppies and causes rapid loss of vision and movement.
