Dean Brogan has defended his dalmatians and his own behaviour after he was convicted of assaulting an Adelaide surgeon. He was found guilty of punching Dr Zahi Khouri in the head after the two men argued about Brogan’s Dalmatians and his Doberman. Brogan’s dalmatians have a history of attacking other animals, but the attack has been deemed to be a one-off and not the result of a pattern.
The Dalmatians are guard dogs related to the pointer family and were traditionally used as guard dogs. They often ran with horse-drawn carriages to protect them from highwaymen and stray dogs. Because Dalmatians are intelligent and independent, they need proper obedience training. It is imperative to set rules and expectations from the start. If you don’t plan to show them off, you might find yourself being the target of a nip-tucky Dal!
Dalmatians are popular as “fire house dogs” because they are often seen riding in fire trucks. Dalmatians originate in the region of Dalmatia in western Europe, which is now Croatia. They have a varied history of service, and have served as border sentinels, sports dogs, draft and pack dogs. Whether it is serving on a fire truck or guarding the border, Dalmatians are highly intelligent, energetic dogs that are perfect for any home.
In addition to their intelligence, Dalmatians also make great companions and are very affectionate. They are dependable watchdogs and need lots of exercise. They do not like to be kept indoors and need plenty of exercise to stay healthy. They do not do well being kept outdoors. Therefore, they should be kept indoors and in a fenced yard. And because Dalmatians are highly active, they require a lot of space and attention.
The colour of Brogan Dalmatians can vary based on the breed. A black or brown Dalmatian may be white with white spots, but it may be rare to find an entirely white dog. In addition, very white puppies are less desirable than others. Their spots develop later than their littermates. It’s important to choose a breeder who has knowledge of the breed. If you’re planning to breed a Dalmatian, it’s important to choose a reputable breeder.
