Coton de Tulear
from romping across a grassy field,
Cotons are happy where ever they go!
We are pleased to introduce you to the Rare Coton de Tuléar purebred dog whose ancestry began in the Port of Tulear, Madagasgar. Legend has it that the dogs swam ashore from a sinking pirate ship and mated with the Tennifer in the Port of Tulear, Madagasgar. The Madagasgar Royalty fell in love with this sturdy small rare breed and declared that only Royalty could own them. The French came to the Port and adored their beauty, intelligence and spunky personalities, happily nicknamed them "Petit Marionette". The name 'Coton' is French for cotton which describes theirmedium- to long-hair, fluffy, cotton-like coat that is hair rather than fur. Since they are a non-shedding breed with low dander they are hypoallergenic and is one of the best breeds for people with allergies.
My husband and I are the first to breed Coton dogs on the Big Island of Hawaii. In fact, we are the only Coton de Tulear breeders in the Hawaiian Islands.
It takes approximately 10 months to have a puppy sent from the Mainland to Hawaii. The process is very comprehensive and extremely costly. This is due to Hawaii's "Rabies Free" quarantine regulations. Incidentlally, traveling with your dog back to the Mainland from Hawaii is very easy. Here is your chance to bond with a Coton puppy of your own. To buy a registered puppy from us, feel free to call or email for more information.
Our goal is to continue the happy and healthy lineage of the Coton de Tuléar. Our Cotons have been OFA tested for heart and patellas, eyes CERFed by an Opthalmologist. They blood panels every two years, including their thyroid and have had all their vaccinations up-to-date .
We are Code of Ethics Breeders (COE) with the American Coton Club. We only sell our potentially show/breeding quality puppies to members of a legitimate Coton de Tulear Registry Club not affiliated with AKC. To learn more about the Coton de Tulear, please click on the icon below:
