      About Coton de Tulears

      Cotons are best known for their fluffy, cotton-like white coats and large, pronounced eyes.

Cotons de Tulear love to be part of the family, thrive on attention, and excel as therapy dogs. Originally from the island of Madagascar, these companion dogs are still fairly rare in the United States, but are gaining popularity steadily due to their lovable, happy personalities.
