Bella, a Dalmatian and Briscoe Protective Systems’ official mascot.

What You Should Know About Dalmatians

Dalmatians are best known for being a mascot at local firehouses. In fact, Briscoe has its own Dalmatian as a mascot – Bella, who can be seen with the company at trade shows and local events. This article gives an overview of this breed of dog and how they became associated with firefighters and fire departments.

The name Dalmatian is assumed to come from Dalmatia, a region in western Yugoslavia, although the breed did not originate there. The name, however, wasn’t officially used in the English language until 1780.

Dalmatians became associated with firehouses when fire departments relied on horse-drawn fire apparatus and this breed of dog was known to have a calming effect on horses. When firefighters responded to a call, the Dalmatian would run alongside the horses for protection. When they arrived at the scene, these dogs would also stand guard to make sure nothing was stolen from the apparatus.

Over the years, the Dalmatian has become the epitome of loyalty to firefighters and the symbol of today’s fire service. Even as the horse-drawn fire engines gave way to more modernized, engine-operated fire trucks, the Dalmatian can still be seen at many of the big-city firehouses. Today, Dalmatians are still found in many firehouses in England, Canada and the United States.

A Dalmatian can grow in size from 19 to 23 inches and 40 to 60 pounds. They have unlimited energy and require plenty of exercise with lots of space to run around in. They may be aggressive towards dogs that are unfamiliar to them or they deem as hostile, but they are generally good with other pets, especially horses.
