Kathi Terrell’s Estrella Mountain Cotons

We are a conservative breeder of the rare Malagasy Coton de Tulear, located in beautiful Prescott, Arizona. We recently moved from the foothills of the Estrella Mountains in Goodyear, Arizona, to the mountains nestled up against Prescott National Forest.

Welcome to our online home. As you browse the pages of our site, we hope you will be as amazed with this breed as we are. Thanks for your interest in Estrella Mountain Malagasy Cotons!

Estrella Mountain Cotons

We are a family owned, family run Malagasy Coton de Tulear Preservation Club code of ethics breeder. Founded in 2011 by Kathi Terrell, Estrella Mountain Cotons strives for excellence in the areas of puppy care, development, socialization and health. We are NOT a puppy mill and we only breed Malagasy Coton de Tulears!


In 2018 Estrella Mountain Cotons became a Code of Ethics breeder with the Malagasy Coton de Tulear Preservation Club (MCPC). We are proud to be one of the founding breeders and support their genetic diversity project. The MCPC is working toward sustainable breeding practices utilizing current DNA technology and scientific genetic analysis. The MCPC is partnering with Embark Veterinary, Inc and the Institute for Canine Biology for the collection and processing of DNA data and the creation of breeding strategies to protect the Malagasy gene pool.
