Information and Pictures

Pepper the Dalmatian Heeler—"Pepper's mom is an Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) and his dad is a Dalmatian. He is loyal and a good watchdog; and, very attentive and sensitive to his master's feelings. He travels well and "eats" the air and other cars passing by. He loves the beach and "eats" the waves as they break. He swims in the pool, plays fetch, digs holes, chases birds and squirrels. He loves (and herds) children, smaller dogs and cats. He is alert, active and energetic."

Description

The Dalmatian Heeler is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Dalmatian and the Australian Cattle Dog. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Note: the Australian Cattle Dog is also called Australian Heeler, Hall's Heeler, Queensland Heeler, Blue Heeler, Red Heeler, Australian Cattledog and Australischer Treibhund.
