Just thought I'd say hi, we are the proud ( and of course slighty frazzled!)
owners, or perhaps thats the other way round, of 2 dal's one liver 13 month old girl called Amber & have fairly recently aquired a boy of about the same age ( don't know for sure his correct age) called Jasper who we got as a tricolour but within a few weeks and a bath seems to have become full liver! I'd like to add what a great site this is........ Razz Razz

Hello Oddball Kat!
It isn't advisable to breed from a lemon spotted dalmatian as the colour is not acceptable by the standard and he would pass the lemon gene onto his offspring. Each breed has a standard which is set and upheld by the breed clubs and the Kennel Club. If you buy a good book on the Dalmatian you should find a copy of the Dalmatian standard in it. I'm surprised it isn't on this website......
I live in France and we try to conform to the F.C.I. standard as do all European countries with the exception of the U.K. Lemons are "not allowed" by the FCI standard either. Personally I think this is a great pity as they are very pretty and after all English setters and other breeds related to the dalmatian allow lemon spotting. At least Oddball will not be aware of this colour prejudice so continue to enjoy him.
As for a good diet - there is a lot elsewhere on this forum- answers to suit all tastes and life-styles. Try a search.
Sally.

The description of the Dalmatian appears in the "shows" section of this website.

As regards coat colour the description is as follows:-

Colour & Markings
Ground colour pure white. Black spotted having dense black spots; liver spotted having liver brown spots; not running together but round and well defined. In size, one pence to fifty pence piece. Spots as well distributed as possible. Spots on extremities smaller than those on the body. Patches, tri-colour and lemon spots highly undesirable. Bronzing on spots undesirable in adults.

As Sally has said, it would be inappropriate to breed from a Dalmatian with incorrect markings as they will be passed on.

Apologies Paul! I thought there must be a description somewhere but when I did a search using "dalmatian description" nothing came up- I didn't think to look under shows! Embarassed
