Coton de Tulear Characteristics
Closely related to the Maltese and the Bichon Frise, the Coton de Tulear has a similar strikingly fluffy coat and loving personality. These are intelligent and friendly dogs who love nothing more than spending time with their people. The Coton is known as a low-maintenance breed and is ideal for first-time pet owners.
Standing between 8-12 inches at the shoulder and weighing 8-13 pounds, the Coton de Tulear is a small dog with a big personality. These dogs were bred for the sole purpose of being a perfect companion, and they certainly excel at that. Whether spending the whole day at your feet while you work or riding shotgun on errands, these dogs want to spend as much time with their human as possible.
Those who know and love the Coton are quick to praise his intelligence, social skills, and surprisingly low-maintenance coat (which can be found in an assortment of colors including tri-color, black, or white). The Coton is quick to pick up on the schedules of his humans and adapt to their lifestyles. Conversely, these dogs are prone to separation anxiety and don't do well when left home for extended periods of time.
Like a lot of other breeds that weigh less than ten pounds, Cotons can feel like they’re a lot bigger than they are – and may even try to take on a fight with a big dog. To help ensure your Coton doesn’t find itself in trouble, introduce him to large dogs under close supervision and be prepared to break up any potential quarrels.
But not to worry, they’re generally extremely friendly, highly adaptable, playful, and loving towards everyone they meet.
How dog-friendly is Arkansas?
Studies are divided over just how dog-friendly Arkansas is. The state has a long going for it, and a few areas for definite improvement. Let’s explore the two primary studies: one from Pawsafe and one from Safewise.
Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, conducted a study to rank each state according to its pet-friendliness. They evaluated states by several important indicators, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and access to services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.
In their study, Pawsafe ranks Arkansas as the #1 most pet-friendly state! That’s right, number one! The state also scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
However, Safewise, a site that reviews safety across the country, came to a very different conclusion. In their study, Arkansas is ranked as the 37th most pet-friendly state. Not terrible, but certainly not number one.
While the two studies produced contrasting results, assuming Arkansas falls somewhere in the middle of the two still puts the state towards the top of the list. So we consider Arkansas to be pet-friendly overall.
A few more facts for dog-lovers in Arkansas
BringFido lists Arkansas as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,500 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels. The site also recommends Lake Wilson Park and the Ozark-St. Francis National Forests as fun dog-friendly activities.
Fifty-two percent of Arkansas residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%!
What kind of dogs do Arkansans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Arkansas are Labradors, Beagles, and German Shepherds. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Boxers, and French Bulldogs.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Arkansas
Arkansas saved 38,197 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 6718 animals were killed over this same period.
Forty-three out of 93 of the animal shelters within Arkansas are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is rather low, but the state has an above-average save rate of 78%. However, this is short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. We hope to see improvement in years to come.
