Meet The Adorable Dog That Looks Like A Mix Between A Dalmatian And A Golden Retriever

Recently (May 15th) a video vent viral on TikTok. The video was one of those popular trends where you show the ‘mom’ and the ‘dad’ and reveal what they made together. Well, this time it was an adorable long-haired Dalmatian that was a result of a normal-haired Dalmatian and a golden retriever.

The video was posted by Andrew Lewis. He has two precious puppies, both long-haired Dalmatians named Oakley and Nellie. Andrew said that he is constantly asked if they are mixed with a golden retriever, so he decided to partake in the popular TikTok trend. Well, let’s just say it worked out because currently, the video has over 2 million likes and almost 8 million views. Although Andrew’s dogs are full-breeds and are not mixed with a golden retriever, the video is still adorable and Oakley and Nellie do look like they’re the perfect middle ground between the two dog breeds.

Andrew told Bored Panda: “So first off, I have two long-haired Dalmatians that are full-bred (Oakley and Nellie). So that post was initially a joke. Every time I go out in public I mostly get asked if they are mixed with a golden retriever or something like that. But I’ve always wanted to get a Dalmatian and randomly stumbled upon a long-haired and I instantly knew right there.

“So I found a lady online trying to get rid of their puppy, which was around 4 months old. When I got there, I noticed he wasn’t fed too well and he was terrified of everything. I don’t know for sure, but I assume he had a not-so-pleasant time before I got him. I picked him up in East Tennessee and named him Oakley! He took a while to adjust and be normal, but he is the absolute happiest dog I’ve ever met.”

Andrew, the owner, said that he found Oakley online when a woman was trying to get rid of him when he was around 4 months old

Later Andrew decided to get Oakley a little sister since he loves to play with people and especially dogs

“Oakley is obsessed with playing fetch with balls and frisbees. He adores people and loves to play with other dogs. After a few months, I knew he needed a sibling to play with while I was at work, so I brought home his new sister, Nellie. They are absolute best friends and play together every day. She loves to play tag with Oakley but she is more of a cuddler and likes taking naps. People ask me about their temperament and I have to say they are both not aggressive and adore everyone.”

Totally cute and cool, but to me looks more than a mix of dalmatian and border collie

Yeah it'd make more sense if it were a border collie

Today I learned Dalmatians come in long haired variations and are adorable.
