He's not an "orange" dalmation, I wouldnt say/dont think. "orange" dals are...Orange :B (like mine and a few other people's)
I actually dont know what his coloration is...But he seems to be a dalmatian at least!

i got him at my LFS. He is a strange fish. Not part of my breeding program. He is kinda my mascot. But I agree with PewPewPew. I do not really know his coloring. I will post some better pics in a new thread. Check it out.

hehe. yep. :3 that article helped set my mind. i'm gonna try to create a beautiful line of dals one day! :3 maybe three lines, a line of VTs, HM, and HMPKs, cause i adore them all. it'll be hard, i gather, but it's something i adore. i love orange Dalmatians so much, and i want to see more of them around.

Dumb question/statement: I thought dals were supposed to have spots like the dal dog, not splashes(?). I guess I was wrong.
I once saw a white with black spots on the body with white fins and another black with white spots (not splashes) on the body with butterfly fins. Are these considered as dals?

if i'm not mistaking, the original Dalmatian was a VT, orange with red splotches. after that.... i'm not sure how the blues and blacks and other colors came to be. i see lots of Dals that are white with blue spots, white with black spots, ect.

I think color doesn't really matter, as long as they have spots. But does it matter where the spots are (body/fin). Are they all considered as dals.
