dalmatian, 1853

thanks wikimedia commons {PD:US}
Here's a dog breed we don't see much at the Museum: a Dalmatian, as painted in 1853 by an artist named T. Goetz.  Can't find anything more about him, but do notice the ears are cropped, which was apparently the practice at that time.

I wonder why they would do that to the dog!
