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 Montana?
Montana is a great place for dogs, especially in the summer – with gorgeous outdoor space and plenty of room for adventure.
The state ranks pretty consistently in the average range for overall pet-friendliness but has great strengths in animal welfare and dog-friendly attractions.
We reviewed two significant studies that rank all 50 states by pet-friendly factors. The first, by animal advocacy group Pawsafe, ranked Montana as the 34th most pet-friendly state.
The second, by consumer safety review site Safewise, ranked Montana quite low at 45th.
The state scored very well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards. However, because of its harsh winters, and less access to pet services in rural areas, Montana took a hit.
Combining these two studies together put Montana towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
