Cotons are the most wonderful little dogs. They are very" in tune" with their owners. Cotons enjoy running in a fenced area they have no prey drive only play drive. I have seen our dogs put their little noses to the ground and wander aimlessly. Because of this Cotons need to be on a leash unless they are in a fenced area. They are happy house dwellers, but they also enjoy being outdoors as well. These are truly the most amazing wonderful little dogs. They smile, they talk, they are forever doing something to make us laugh These dogs are above all companion dogs and need to be with their people. As you stroll through our site I’ll tell you about our family,about our Cotons, and I’ll tell you why we chose this breed. I will also tell you how our first Coton helped my husband recover from a back injury. We are proud to be CTCA Code of Ethics breeders. Enjoy and if you have any questions you can contact us at:
LEARN ABOUT COTONS!
The Malagasy Coton de Tulear is originally from Madagascar and was brought to the United States by Dr. Jay Russell in 1974. The Malagasy Coton should not be mistaken for European Coton Which are small, all or mostly white dogs that look very much like the Maltese. The CTCA registered Malagasy Coton de Tulear come in three color varieties Tri-color, Black and White and White ( sometimes they have a bit of Champagne).The Tri color Cotons usually fade somewhere between 18 months and 2 years. The black and whites seem to keep their color turning a silver or gray. Chilhowee Cotons are direct decendants of the original Cotons brought from Madagascar by Dr. Russell.

There is also a wonderful book on CD that you can purchase through the CTCA website. Follow the link at the bottom of this page to order. I highly recommend this book. I purchased and read it before I got my first Malagasy Coton.
