Meet Thumper, an adorable Dalmatian/Pit Bull mix that weighs 45 pounds and is about five years old. Thumper is very much still a sweet puppy and loves to play, run, and play some more! She has the sweetest face with precious expressions and ears! She came from a high-kill shelter where she was picked up as a stray and was out of time when CCDAL agreed to take her in.

As you can see, Thumper is a very happy, social girl who would love to have a family to call her own and maybe even a four legged buddy to play with. She has a lot of energy and loves to run which is evident by the well defined muscles on her back end. She is very smart and is learning obedience and manners in her foster home and we are sure she will pick up on basic commands very quickly. She is already crate trained and loves to ride in the car.

If you think Thumper is the right dog for you and your family and you live in Virginia, please fill out an application. Thumper is microchipped and fully vetted--spayed, all vaccines, heartworm negative, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventative. The family will need to invest in a crate since she is very much a puppy, and she will need a place to sleep and safely stay when her family is not home. Her new family will also need to continue with her obedience training.

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.
