About Cotons


The Coton de Tulear is a rare, pure-breed that originated over four centuries ago in Madagascar. Cotons were bred for their attachment to humans and their handsome, cotton-like coats. Since the Coton breed is rare, the availability of Coton de Tulears to the public is limited. Coton breeders are careful about who they sell their precious puppies to, perhaps more than other breeders, as the Coton breed has been carefully monitored and has developed a dog that is of very high quality without the development of negative traits or genetic defects.
