UPDATED!  Hello, I am Katie. I have been in foster care for almost five years and I just do not understand why no one has wanted me! I am a pretty, feisty, little female (45 pounds), guessed to be between 5 and 6 years old. I don't look a lot like a Dalmatian, but the local shelter said I was a 'Dalmatian mix' so CCDAL took me in. I have a lot of energy and I'm very athletic. My foster mom thinks I would be good at something called 'agility.'

I love spending time with my pack, older kids, running, cuddling, and most dogs. I need supervision in the yard because the 'other' (non-Dalmatian) part of me likes to run free. I am told that I can be very charming, especially when I cock my head and put my ears up. I am also extremely playful, curious, and energetic.

I am very pretty when I sit and I'm working very hard to not jump up on humans and to understand what 'off' means...but it is easy to forget when I get excited to see someone or smell something yummy in the kitchen! I would love to sit in your lap, but I'm starting to undrstanding that I need to be invited up or I have to stay on the floor. I am told I am a smart girl and that I learn quickly.

I snooze patiently in my crate while you are gone during the day, but when you come home, I'm ready to go with my tail wagging and wagging. At the end of a big day, I like to curl up in my crate and will burrow down for the night in my big, soft blanket. I sleep easily through the night, but in the morning I'm ready to get up and go again.

To see me in action, check out my videos:

#2 - Running

#3 - Being Me

I am spayed, housebroken, up to date on shots, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. I have no health problems and love playing with other dogs. A buddy would be wonderful but I'm OK with being an only dog, too. I would benefit from continued obedience training and clear, consistent direction. If you think I am right for you, please fill out an adoption application...I've waited a very long time to meet my 'furever' family! Wouldn't you please take me home? Why not?

About Chocolate Chip Dalmatian Assistance League (CCDAL)

About Our Rescue Group...

Chocolate Chip Dalmatian Assistance League (CCDAL) is a non-profit, 501c3 organization dedicated to helping unwanted, abandoned, abused, and/or neglected Dalmatians find loving, permanent homes. We evaluate the temperament of the dogs, foster the selected Dalmatians in our homes, bring them up to date on vet care, spay or neuter, and provide socialization.

We generally do not take in owner surrenders for foster, but will assist the owners in finding a new home by posting their Dalmatian on our web site provided they will continue to physically and financially support their dog until an appropriate, permanent home is located.


Rescuing pure-bred Dalmatians and Dalmatian mixes of good temperament from local shelters and finding appropriate permanent homes for them,

Educating the public about the Dalmatian breed,

Assisting owners with all aspects of raising a Dalmatian,

Promoting responsible pet ownership,

Advocating spay/neuter as a means of decreasing pet over-population, and

Cooperating with other rescue groups and assisting them whenever possible.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All pets are fostered in a private home. Please submit an application to set up a meeting with one of our dogs.


Our Adoption Process...

As the first step, an adoption application (available at is required. The application is reviewed by a committee and a vet check is done. The applicant is then invited to the foster home to meet the dog. Once everyone agrees that the dog and new family are a good match, a home visit is done before a contract is completed. Our adoption fee is $250.00. The process can take up to two weeks depending on volunteers' schedules.
