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 North Dakota?
We’ve found that different studies rank North Dakota quite differently on dog-friendly factors. The state does a great job with some aspects of pet accommodations and services. The main area of improvement for North Dakota is in its animal welfare laws. Let’s look at two leading studies to understand the state’s rankings.
An animal welfare group called Pawsafe releases a ranking of all 50 states according to several pet-friendly factors. Pawsafe ranks North Dakota 45th of all the states. It’s a pretty tough ranking. As we mentioned the main issue is that North Dakota does not score well for laws against animal cruelty like pet abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
Safewise conducts another study looking even more closely at safety for pets and their human friends. They actually give North Dakota a much better ranking, listing the state as the 21st most pet-friendly in the country.
If we take the two studies together, North Dakota still ranks somewhere in the middle compared to other states.
