I had a very sweet dalmatian years ago, her name was Kiara..I found her in a garbage container, she was about 4 months old. She was a beautiful girl, very high energy
Maybe they should consider them in this line of work in the USA. Anyone who has ever owned one, knows that they could be good at it.
