We came across this beautiful breed nine years ago after searching high and low for a dog that wouldn't bother my daughter's allergies. While no dog is truly hypoallergenic, the Coton de Tulear is one of the few breeds that she could easily tolerate. Their fur is soft and airy light with very little dander. They are essentially non-shedding, although you may find wisps of cottony balls floating in corners occasionally. They also have very little "doggy odor".
Along with this cottony coat comes a heavenly disposition. These dogs are good natured, and great with kids. They are also generally healthy, and with proper care can be a loving companion for your family for years to come.
Our cotons are our family pets. They live in our home, sleep in our beds, and provide us with endless hours of entertainment. Our puppies are lovingly spoiled and well socialized, as they live in a busy household including three children, so there is no shortage of new sights and sounds for them to enjoy as they grow and develop.
