The legend of Dalmatian puppies traces their roots to the region of Dalmatia in modern-day Croatia, along the coasts of the Adriatic Sea. It is reckoned by historians of the ancient world that early Dalmatian puppies were raised to be guardians and warriors. Mention Dalmatian puppies to a random passerby today and the first thing that’ll probably pop to mind is a fire hydrant or a Disney cartoon.
We can debate their origins and associations all day, but one thing is certain — Dalmatian puppies love to help and be engaged in every activity imaginable. The average litter has between nine and 13 Dalmatian puppies, but to look at a picture, it seems more like a thousand.
