Dalmatian Husky History

The Dalmatian Husky is a non-purebred hybrid, or “designer”, cross between the Siberian Husky and the Dalmatian. The Dalmatian Husky is rumored to have been created in the 1990s by Jim and Julie Walters. The Walters family wanted a dog that would withstand the cold Canadian winters, but was also playful and affectionate. The Walters family started breeding their mixed-breed puppies to pedigreed and purebred dogs, but the results were unsatisfactory. The Walters were dissatisfied with the poor temperament and health problems of the puppies produced through this method, so they stopped using this approach and began crossing their puppies with unrelated dogs. Through this process, the Walters eventually developed a type of canine that could withstand even the coldest Canadian winter, was friendly, and had a good temperament.
