The Coton de Tulear should possess a base coat of “white”. Solid white and white with crème patches are 66% of all pure bred Coton de Tulears at birth. Tri color [ with a base coat of white ] is 33% of all pure bred Cotons at birth. The very rare black and white are less than 1% of all pure bred Cotons. The hair that is other than white fades as the Coton de Tulear matures. Fading to a very light crème, extremely light roan and the black fades to a super light silver, as the Coton de Tulear has a diluting gene.
The Coton de Tulear was banned from exporting from the island of Madagascar in 1992 due to the threat of extinction. Europeans have had the breed in their individual countries since 1950’s, if not earlier. Our Coton de Tulear have blood lines from Madagascar. Keep in mind that France’s presence in the western Indian Ocean dates to the early seventeenth century. The French established a settlement in southern Madagascar in 1634 and occupied the islands of Reunion and Rodrigues. The French recognized the Coton de Tulear many years ago. Written history about Madagascar in the 17th century mentions the small dog resembling a fox — with short legs living in the wild. Merchant ships traveled to and from Madagascar and Spain for many years.
In the 17th century Sir Etienne de Flacourt [1607-1660] the French governor of Madagascar, born in Orleans in 1607, he was named the governor of Madagascar by the French East Indian Company in 1648. Sir de Flacourt was a governor, historian and surveyor in Madagascar. In the 17th century Sir de Flacourt wrote about the dogs he saw in Madagascar “there are a lot of dogs that are small with a long nose and short legs, they look like foxes, some are white, some have small patches of mild color, the dogs are used for hunting the wild pigs”. Sir de Flacourt wrote a book in 1658 “Historie de la grande isle de Madagascar” first edition 1658, 2nd edition 1661.

Our Mission Statement
We are not members of a Coton de Tulear club. Our mind set is that an “ethical, honest and trustworthy breeder” should be natural and honest behavior, plus possessing a deep devoted love and admiration for a breed. A club or membership does not create a breeder with those attributes –and is not “obtained” by a club membership or by having club members and authorities overseeing the breeder, or by imposing fines and punishment by the club to make sure breeder members are living up to a clubs written standard. Not everyone can be a ethical breeder. You must be willing to serve unlimited hours of work and care around the clock no matter the day of the week, then with puppies care the time factor increases profoundly. There is no fixed hours when working and nurturing the dam and puppies. It requires devotion, and an unlimited budget for expenses. Feeding your animals an excellent food source, health testing, yearly evaluations and health examinations, socialization, training [puppies] and spending quality time with your animals. Care and attention is primary, health testing in general and normal health care, veterinarian routine visits and inoculations.

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 for many, many years 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 finally accepted the breed Coton de Tulear in 1970. 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 baby Cotons standing in their water bowls splashing and walking in the water having fun. 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, for all known diseases. Then as well they receive 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 funny and clownish. 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 we find small hair balls under my sofa or table, but no hair on furniture, clothing. Our Cotons enjoy a holistic dry dog food and vitamins daily.
