The Coton's purpose in life is to love, entertain, and comfort his owner. No one knows the Coton de Tulear better than these Breed authorities who describe his unique coat, qualities, and character.
Ruth Weidrick, Coton Breed Representative
Cotons are lively little dogs with non-shedding, hypo-allergenic, soft "cotton-like" coat. They are ideal family companions because the center of the Coton’s world is “their” human. A Coton will be your little white shadow, hanging onto every word you say, occasionally cocking their heads at your witticisms. Their captivating eyes appear to be rimmed with black eye liner and their happy-go-lucky personality draws attention like a magnet. They are playful, affectionate lap dogs, laughingly known as little kissing machines. Intelligent, eager to please, Cotons are so smart; they will have “You” trained before you know it. Averaging twelve pounds, the Coton is an agile, muscular self-exerciser that stays fit well into their senior years.

The Coton is "a big dog in a little dog suit”, naturally sound, sturdy, athletic and which bonds closely to their family pack. A natural purebred evolving in the 14th Century, the Coton was bred for companionship, is easy going and good with good children. Deemed the "Anti-Stress Dog of the New Millenium", Cotons are an excellent candidate for Therapy work and the unique hair makes them suitable for most allergy and asthma sufferers. A predominantly white dog, puppies born with dark hair on the head, ears and body which often washes out into silvers and champagnes by adulthood is the Hallmark of the breed. Cotons excel in all areas with people who understand a thinking dog's mind and strive to develop a relationship with their canine soul mate.
