As an avid dog lover, I had been wanting a puppy for a long time but my fiance was on the fence about it. Finally he said that he really liked Dalmatians so I did lots and lots of research to make sure we would be prepared. I fell in love with Simon right away and signed my heart over along with my money. His first couple of days were tough but you would never know by the way he runs the house now! Simon loves people and is very smart. He was housebroken after the first week we had him and has already mastered several commands.
