The Coton de Tulear originates from
|It is assumed that they are the ancestors of the Bichon family and possibly other local terriers. The Coton de Tulear resulted from this wonderful cross. The breed has only been recognized since 1971. According to the Federation Cynologique Internationale (the european version of AKC) the breed standard is as follows:|
Height - at withers approximately 9.8in. to 12.5in.
Weight- 8.8lbs. to 13.2lbs.
|These standards can vary if
dog is sold as a companion. The weight is proportional
to the height. They accept three colors to be shown:
white, champagne & white, and tri-colored (white,
champagne & black). Although not accepted
in the show ring, there is a more rare black & white. Cotons have a
fading gene that allows them to get lighter in coloring as they get older.
A very dark tri-colored puppy can turn out very light in color when it
reaches maturity. The more ginger the champagne coloring is, the
more likely it will keep some of the coloring.
The coat is soft, cottony & never coarse or oily. Gently brushing 2-3 times a week will help alleviate the mats. During the period of 7 to 14 months the adult coat is coming in, this will require more attention. It will have the tendency to mat.
|They have dark
brown eyes that are rimmed with black. The nose and lips
are all black. The ears are dropped, thin,
triangular and covered with long hair. The ratio of the
height at the withers to the length is 2:3. The Coton has
a slightly curved top line which in part differentiates him from
other members of the Bichon family.
The Coton is a wonderful companion, often acting like a clown. They have a personality of a large dog but in a small frame. They are intelligent and forms very strong bonds with his/her masters.
