All About the Coton de Tulear Breed

Coton de TulearAt Family Puppies, offering the best puppy breeds is part of our promise to our clients. And that, of course, includes the Coton de Tulear breed; a dog that is bred in Nappanee, Indiana, only a short drive from South Bend, and Chicago. The dog is known for its “cotton” white hair, and origin—from Tulear, a port on the African island of Madagascar, where it’s also the island’s patron pup.

But that’s not all… if you’re wondering, the breed that the American Kennel Club calls the “Ultimate Companion Dog” is renowned for a number of reasons. That includes:

Coton de Tulear personality

The Coton de Tulear breed is particularly happy and clownish, a chappy little pup that is always up for having a fun time. These dogs love to please and are extremely loyal to any owner who treats them well. If socialized properly, they also get along great with other pets, and people. They’re ready to be best friends for life.

Coton de Tulear grooming

While Coton translates to “Cotton” in French, this breed’s hair isn’t as difficult as it seems. Sure, it requires daily grooming and care, but these dogs are actually hypoallergenic, meaning that those who are allergy-prone can approach the breed without a worry. They’ll be excited to say hello!

Coton de Tulear energy

Smaller breeds are known to be lively, and Coton de Tulears are no exception. This breed is able to perform basically any type of physical activity, like swimming or walking on their hind legs, making them an extremely versatile breed. So, sure, they’d love to go on that walk. In fact, they thought you’d never ask!

That’s why we’re proud to offer Coton de Tulear pups to our clients. We think they’re the perfect dog for anyone and will be a great addition to your family. To find out more about this lovable breed, contact Family Puppies today by calling 574-354-2428.
