Coton de Tulear Information
If you’re looking for a funny, smart, impossibly charming dog who loves to entertain and provide comfort, the Coton de Tulear is your pup. Pronounced “coTAWN day two-LEE are,” this sweet dog boasts a fluffy white coat that feels as soft as cotton – hence the name. For only weighing 8-13 pounds and standing a mere 9-11 inches, the breed is surprisingly robust. You have to have a heart of stone not to smile when you see their adorable, happy faces!
While the history of this breed is not well known, it is strongly believed that they descended from a line of dogs who survived a shipwreck near the Madagascar coast. Talk about an adventurous past.
