Our Goal & Mission Statement
To provide to the approved home/general public pure blooded Coton de Tulear puppies from exceptional well researched, healthy, intelligent parents. Exclusively Champion and International Champion European lineages. We do not have Cotons from American blood lines - at all.
Our Cotons possess superior temperaments. Imported from well known Coton de Tulear kennels of Europe. Bloodlines of Woodland Cottage, Kelnot Toliary, Cartoonland, Blue Moon Cottage and others. Registered with the world kennel club the FCI.
The Coton de Tulear was accepted by the FCI in 1970. See the official web site of the FCI at www.fci.be
We discovered that most American blood lines of Coton de Tulears are mixed with Havanese, Bichon Frise, Maltese, Yorkies and numerous other breeds, which created the solid black, solid brown coat colors, solid tan coats along with white socks/feet. This information obtained after visiting numerous Coton de Tulear breeders in the United States.
Then the tall Coton de Tulear that stands as tall as a Lab. As well Cotons do not possess blue, or green eyes. Keep in mind that these solid coat colors, white socks/feet and tall Cotons are only found in the United States, they are unheard of in Europe, Finland, Canada, Argentina and other countries. Additionally; there is not a kennel club in the world that has a confirmation for the Coton de Tulear listing solid colored coats other than white, they do allow tri color, as these are considered the true Coton de Tulear.
FYI here is a link to an excellent web site [ below] ]to a Havanese breeder in Europe that gave us permission to use her web site page to explain the color of the Havanese, a distant cousin of the Coton de Tulear. This is how a full blooded Havense looks not a Coton de Tulear. A Coton de Tulear can be all white, white and creme at birth or tri color at birth --- they should never look like the photos of these pure bred Havanese puppies, with solid coat colors and white boots/feet. The Havanese are beautiful animals and they do have a different type of hair compared to the Coton de Tulear. Hope this helps with questions about the coat color of the Coton de Tulear. Also see the links below [ bottom left side of the page] from several kennel clubs with the confirmation/standard of the Coton de Tulear breed. www.felici-animali.be/PdC_en_colours.htm
Our vision is to improve and provide a pure bred Coton de Tulear puppy, that promises years of companionship to a family of one or ten. Having one or two litters yearly.
It was not until the 20th century that it was legal to own this breed unless you were of high economic status in Madagascar.
The last exporting of Coton de Tulears from Madagascar legally was in 1992.
Health is our number one concern in the past, present and the future.
Our goal is to keep the Coton de Tulear as it was discovered, brought to Europe and other countries as early as the 1950's from the island of Madagascar.
The Coton de Tulear previously known as the "Royal Dog of Madagascar".
With the Coton de Tulear you have selected a breed that is totally amazing, loving, gentle, laid back always willing to be a part of your life if relaxing or at play........they are a true companion, healthy, alert and they light up a room when they walk in.
Say NO to the AKC acceptance of this wonderful, healthy, happy pure bred Coton de Tulear
Please sign the petition against the acceptance of the breed into the AKC with the link below.

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. Only one very rare black and white Coton de Tulear has been born to our Cotons ! That is how rare the black and white Cotons are !
Not many veternarians know fo 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. First mentioned in their history in the 1500's.
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.

*Sorry but we do not allow anyone around our Coton
babies until they have received their first Parvo
injection at six weeks of age, then we ask to give an
additional week after the injection has been given by
our vet. Parvo is a death sentence to a puppy. We no
longer take the chance of exposing our Cotons to the
Parvo virus. We allowed families around our babies in
the past, then visitors came into our home with the
Parvo virus, resulting in the death of a litter of puppies
and two adult dogs. It was a horrible and painful
death for our animals. A horrific experience to
watch our beloved animals die, even after we
provided first class medical care and hospitalization.
It was our mistake and a very difficult lessoned
learned. We no longer take chances and our
vet was very upset with us for allowing
strangers around our babies. No more heavy hearts
here. Later our veternarian told us that he knows of
families that lost young adults, puppies and senior
adults from Parvo, basically killing each dog on a
property. We were blessed in some way, again an
important lesson learned. What most people don't
know is that Parvo stays in the ground and active up to
one year and can be activated by season changes, plus
dirt/ground being turned in flower beds.

A hobby breeder must always place the animals in top priority, every hour of every day, as we are their exclusive care givers.
The adult Cotons have yearly blood testing, complete physicals and x-rays, required injections. And licensed by the county we reside.
Our Cotons live in our home full time. They are part of our family. They are wire caged trained. They sleep in their wire cages [condos] at night in our family room. Their condos have fresh towels daily, toys and blankets of their choice. During our life experiences with dogs we learned a long time ago that a well behaved, happy, alert and well adjusted puppy/adult dog is the result of wire cage training.
Play time outside, socialization in the house and one on one time while relaxing watching TV or just sitting on the front porch of the house. Our Cotons and babies are exposed to the vaccum, hair dryer, TV, phone ringing, doors opening and closing, the wash machine, dryer and fans blowing in the summer months, tractor and lawn mower being used on our property. We expose them to all the normal every day sounds of a household.
When our female has babies the dam and puppies are our top concern, around the clock. The dam needs to go outside all hours of the day and during the early morning hours. Their body functions are twenty four hours a day.
We begin house breaking the puppies at six weeks of age, the process is around the clock. The puppies wake up and cry and we all go outside.
We love sharing the Coton de Tulear experience with others. We have tons of memories and experiences that could never be duplicated or forgotten. Our Cotons keep us active, happy and alert. That is why we find placing a Coton with another family or indiviudal their lives will be fuller and they will have a companion for many years to come.
History of the ancestors health and temperament and ancestry/bloodlines are vital to knowing if a puppy will be healthy, have the perfect temperament, be true to the confirmation of the breed.
Just take a quick look at the breeders outside of the United States who have at least thirty plus years involved with importing their foundation stock from Madagascar prior to 1992, you will be shocked at the true look of a Coton de Tulear compared to most Coton de Tulear puppies and adults you can find in the United States. How could one hundred plus breeders in the entire continent of Europe and other countries such as Finland, Argentina, Brazil, Sweden and Canada be wrong ? When they have the most time and involvement with the Coton de Tulear breed.
