Malagasy Coton de Tulear Info

The Coton de Tulear Club of America is the first and largest coton club in America…. home of the beautiful and rare Malagasy Coton de Tulear.

There are two different breeds sold in the United States as “Coton de Tulears”.

The rare, original Malagasy Coton de Tulear was developed over centuries on the island of Madagascar.  The Royal Malagasy Coton is a small, intelligent, playful, muscular companion class dog.This breed can be found in three different colors and can only be acquired through a CTCA Code of Ethics Breeder.

Then there is the European Coton which was imported into the United States in the 90’s. This breed was bred in Europe with Maltese and Bichons to produce a smaller, toy breed. The European coton is also usually all white in color.
