Dalmatian’s cute reaction to cleaning his lookalike toys goes viral
A clip of a Dalmatian called Oreo anxiously waiting for his lookalike toys to dry out so he can play again has left the internet in a frenzy.
The videoshared by the owner of Oreo under the username aliandoreo, shows the dog jumping up and down, trying to catch his multiple dalmatian fluff as they dry.
According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), Dalmatians are very playful dogs. Their non-stop energy level is quite high and they are very affectionate with family members.
Famous for their black and white spotted coats since 101 Dalmatians, these strong, muscular dogs were first bred to guard horses and coaches. Some of the old protective instinct remains, as they are considered reliable watchdogs.
In 2019, a Dalmatian named Melody from Australia set a new world record by giving birth to 19 puppies, all named after Disney characters.
Dalmatian puppies are actually born without their characteristic spots, which develop a few weeks later.
Not much is known about the origins of the breed and, according to AKC, there is no evidence that the breed even originated in Dalmatia, which is in modern Croatia.
What is known is that Dalmatian spotted dogs appear in ancient Egyptian wall paintings, medieval letters and Italian frescoes.
According to the Dalmatian Club of America, purebred Dalmatians only have black or liver-colored spots on their fur, and any markings showing different colors disqualify them from classification as pure Dalmatians.
Their eye color can be brown or blue, or any combination of these, and it is usually darker in black-spotted dogs than in liver-spotted dogs.
