Description: The Coton De Tulear is a loyal, friendly, and playful dog. It will follow its master to do practically anything, and are good pets for families with children or older couples. Originally from Madagascar, the Coton De Tulear tends to be very affectionate and loyal and will follow its master to the very end. They are small, fluffy dogs that are either pure white, tri-colored with black and yellow patches, or simply black and white. The breed was descended from the Bichon-type dogs, which do not shed a lot. Cotons are known for their comical ability to walk on their hind legs. They are adoring of humans, and quite silly at times. Their hair may need regular grooming, but their happy personalities make up for the trouble of grooming.

A joyful and active pet, the Coton de Tulear makes an original and enjoyable companion for years to come.
