The Coton de Tulear is a companion dog. They are medium sized dogs, fun, loving, attentive, athletic & very intelligent.
We are registered Code of Ethics Breeders with the Malagasy Coton de Tulear Preservation Club(MCPC) .
Our family truly loves this fun, intelligent, athletic breed. We have started our breeding program in 2015. Cotons are wonderful companions, great family dogs & travel well.
We believe in working together with your pet as a team, which not only builds a good relationship between you and your pet, but is very rewarding for both of you as well. Socializing your dog with both humans and other dogs is very important. Healthy dogs are of both sound mind & body. Stimulating your dog mentally as well as physically is very important. When a dog has proper socialization, you can feel confident in bringing your dog into most situations without worry and they can travel well with you as your closest companion.
Coton de Tulear's generally weigh between 9-18 pounds and are about 2 feet long. They stand between 9.5 & 13 inches tall at the shoulders. Cotons can be pure white, tri-colored or black & white.

In August 2019, Adorable Cotons joined the Malagasy Coton de Tulear Preservation Club (MCPC) and completed & passed DNA testing as well.
In 1974 Dr. Jay Russell bought the first Madagscar Cotons back to the United States. A Malagasy Coton de Tulear are those Cotons bred to the CTCA breed standard AND whose ancestors can be traced back to the founder dogs. With new advances in canine genetic research, the MCPC has chosen to partner with Embark Veterinary, to provide DNA genotyping and analysis for all our breeding dogs. The MCPC also works with the Institute of Canine Biology (ICB) in providing our board and our breeders with further education in canine genetics. These new advances in technology that Embark Veterinary and ICB are utilizing, will help breeders make better matchmaking choices based on a coefficient of inbreeding that measures the level of homozygosity on each chromosome and comparing the relatedness of breeding pairs.
Working with all breeders that share traceable lineage from Madagascar, and using DNA analysis, will allow us to make breeding decisions, and every breeding must be approved.
