AUSTRALIAN BREED STANDARD AND EXTENSION

HINDQUARTERS

    ROUNDED, MUSCLES CLEAN WITH WELL DEVELOPED SECOND THIGH, GOOD TURN OF STIFLE AND HOCKS WELL DEFINED.

    Correct hindquarters on a Dalmatian are also important as it is a dog who must be able to gait for many kilometres up and down hills. It is a "moderate" dog with a normal front angulation, and therefore requires a stifle which is moderately well bent. The Dalmatian should convey endurance and a fair turn of speed. If it had excessive angulation it would tire itself and without angulation, would not cover the ground. The hindquarters should be strong. The outline of well developed muscles should be clearly seen on the buttocks, legs and second thigh. The pelvic slope should be approximately 30 degrees. The thigh and second thigh should be long and the hock to the ground short. Muscles should be well developed in inner and outer thighs as well as the second thigh (calf muscle). The hock should be vertical to the ground when standing. Hocks should be well let down to give good endurance.
