They exist but it's basically just someone messing with genetics and making a dog into a science experiment. Just my two cents....

They are not true dalmatians I feel genetics should be left to the scientists We have enough problems with deafness and skin problems in our breed to have some breeder bring out other ones

Yes they do exist but as the other's are saying there causing more harm to the breed than good... A lot of inbreeding is going on through this..

Yes, there is such a breed, but it's only messing with genetics. Our breed has enough health problems to worry about, let alone adding more . I sure wish they could breed out those allergy problems,I hate the itches! frown wave

I agree - the breeders should be working on the bad traits that other bad breeders have bred into the breed like deafness, allergies, bad temperament, etc. I am a victim - I am hard of hearing in one ear and have some skin irritations. Lately, my daddy had done well with my diet and my there's actually fur on my underbelly and flanks where I used to over lick and scratch.

Give me some- pettings please
