Dalmatian Fire Dog Names
Why is it that when you think of a firehouse dog you automatically think of a Dalmatian? Turns out it has nothing to do with their bravery around fire, rather the breed was well known for running alongside the horses in the horse-drawn fire engines, naturally keeping the same pace with the horses and protecting them from other dogs or animals! So, they were hired!
It might be fun to name your Dalmatian after the breed’s legacy even if you never expect him to help you put out a fire. But be sure that he will warn you if there’s smoke around!
