A Brief History Of The
Since the mid 18th century,
historians have found references to the breed of dog known as the
Dalmatian. The breeds’ first established home, for which the breed was
also named after was Dalmatia. It is a place in the Western Yugoslavian
area which at one time was part of Austria, located on the Adriatic.
However, these dogs were well-known throughout many parts of the world
long before that time.
This dog breed was shown in various types of antique
art including engravings, paintings, models, and early writings which
have accounted for the presence of spotted dogs of the same size and
type in wide-ranging areas including early Africa, Asia, and Europe.
history tells us, several bands of ancient gypsies (Romanies) were
accompanied by the dogs in their wanderings around the world, which
explains the vast widespread and popularity of the breed.
The Dalmatian quickly became a favorite and established some of their
best known claims to fame in Great Britain. They were brought there by
members of the British upper classes who in those days often made tours
to Europe and would often come back accompanied by some of the striking
Right after they were adopted by the English aristocracy
who used them to accompany their horse-drawn carriages, the charming
dog soon became a feature of these processions. The dogs were taught to
station themselves beneath the rear axle of the coach, and in some
cases to trot underneath the pole separating the horses. They were also

Another type of activity with which the Dalmatian became known for,
which also said to have started in Great Britain, is his very famous
role of being a "firehouse dog.” This was said to have started with the
dogs being used as ratters, for the function of killing vermin in
London's stables and firehouses, which they did with expertise.
these dogs loved the horses and the fire engine, so it was almost
inevitable that they soon were racing ahead of them through the streets
whenever the alarm was sounded. In the present days, many Dalmatians
can still be seen riding on the fire trucks with their masters.
Dalmatians are still considered as the mascot and are often found in
firehouses, not only in Great Britain but in the United States and
other countries as well.
In addition to being a “firehouse dog,” Dalmatians have also worked in
war times; done sentinel duty; served as shepherd's dogs; and as draft
dogs. They have been seen in many circus shows, especially enjoying
popularity with the clowns as "assistants," their intelligence,
aptitude, and showy appearance having fitted them particularly well for
