Often we are asked “what does a Coton de Tulear look like?”
Best companion animal in the World!
Did you know that identity theft is prevalent in the dog world, similar to what happens to humans. Especially with this rare breed.
Any questions please feel free to ask, we expect everyone to have questions after reading this web site, there is much to read and absorb.
No visitors allowed with our babies until they are at least 7 weeks of age and have received their first puppy injection— recently a new airborne virus is in the area where we live and in various areas of Ohio, Indiana, Michigan; we just will not take chances with our baby Cotons or our three adult Cotons.
Adult/parents and puppies are served Life’s Abundance, an holistic dry dog food, and NuVet vitamins. Usually great for those with allergies [ our own personal experience and those of many others ].
Our home is near Dayton, Ohio. We are not a kennel, there are no dog runs, no out buildings. We are not a puppy mill or broker.
Our pledge – never to mate/bred relatives that is only an invitation for birth defects and other health issues which can occur at birth, in the puppy months or even well into their adult years. We are committed to happy, highly socialized and well adjusted Coton de Tulear puppies.
We are Coton de Tulear hobby breeders, involved solely for the love, enjoyment and companionship of the breed. Our Coton de Tulear puppies for adoption come with a health guarantee.
Ethical without being involved in a Coton Club – we feel that ethical behavior should come naturally not be acquired simply by joining a club!
We do have an application process to find your interest in a Coton de Tulear puppy and your level of experience raising a puppy, we like the transition from our home, then into your life be as smooth as humanly possible.

Lineage & Health Tested
Pure bred Coton de Tulear puppies born in the world yearly are white or white and creme 66% of births. Tri color coats are 33% of births and the very rare black and white is 1% of births in the world yearly. Not many veternarians know of the breed or have seen a Coton de Tulear in person. Not many people in general have knowledge of the breed.
If you are just discovering the Coton de Tulear, there is not much history written. History about the breed we found was in Europe. Keep in mind that the French occupied Madagascar where the breed is from.
The Europeans were the first to export the breed out of Madagascar into Europe as early as the 1950′s, some Europeans note that families owned a Coton in earlier years.
The French began asking for the Coton de Tulear admission into the FCI in 1960′s. The FCI accepted the breed Coton de Tulear in 1970. See www.fci.be
The Coton de Tulear breed carry a happy energy about them, but not hyper. They possess a super temperament male or female. Are very intelligent, loyal, loving. They love water starting at a very young age. Often when we have puppies we find little Cotons standing in their water bowls splashing and walking in the bowl as if it is a baby pool.
Cotons love to snuggle and make great foot warmers in your bed at night. Cotons will follow you around in the house and be involved with what you are doing. They enjoy people of all ages, they have great patience with children and older people.
Actually the Coton is a “big dog in a small body”. Very shocking to us when we discovered the Coton de Tulear, we expected all the negative things you hear about small breed dogs, that never happened.
Our Cotons are thoroughly health tested. Receiving yearly blood panel work, thyroid blood tests, health exams and up dated x-rays, eye testing.
The Coton de Tulear does not require frequent/mandatory exercise daily. But they do love to run and act like clowns at time, they are funny critters to say the least.
A Coton de Tulear has hair instead of fur. The Coton de Tulear sheds when groomed, or when brushed/combed, after a bath. The shedding/hair loss is much like human hair. Now and then I find small hair balls under my sofa or table, but no hair on furniture, clothing.
*Micky C*Micky Ceriez of Woodland Cottage, Spain, has retired and is no longer producing her world renown Coton de Tulear puppies. Best wishes to Micky’s retirement in the fall of 2013 – the very best to Micky and her family. We are blessed to have had Micky Ceriez of the one and only legitimate Woodland Cottage of SPAIN as our mentor/friend for many years and super proud to have her babies [ now adults ] in our lives.
