PURINA: Your Pet, Our Passion


The only spotted breed of dog, the Dalmatian has an outgoing disposition and thrives with a loving family. The original coach dog, the Dalmatian is well-known for riding proudly atop a fire engine or running with a carriage. Having great endurance, the Dalmatian competes in long-distance road trials. This highly intelligent breed needs daily exercise, and his fine coat needs regular brushing to minimise shedding.
