Pets & Animals Blog

If you are thinking of expanding your pet "family" or adopting your very first family dog, then a Coton de Tulear puppy makes a great choice. Not only do these puppies naturally love to play with children and get along very well with other dogs, but a well taken care of Coton de Tulear can live a long life of 16 years on average and the breed tends to experience very few health problems compared to many other toy-sized purebred dogs. 

What else makes adorable Coton de Tulear puppies such as great option for virtually all families? Read on to learn two additional reasons you can feel good about adopting Coton de Tulear puppies.

1. You Will Be Helping the Breed Once Again Flourish after an Extinction Scare

Since Coton de Tulears make such great pets, you may wonder why you don't know anyone who owns one or why you haven't even have heard of the breed. This dog breed originated in Madagascar, and the "Tulear" in the breed's name is the name of the city in Madasgascar the dog is thought to be from. 

Coton de Tulears are actually descendants of a breed called Coton de Reunions, and the Coton de Reunion breed has, unfortunately, already become extinct. Thankfully, Coton de Reunions did mate with small terriers in Madagascar, and the two breeds create the breed now known as the Coton de Tulears. 

The Coton de Tulear breed is still considered a very rare breed, yet as breeders do their part to help aid in the restoration of the numbers of Coton de Tulear dogs out there and families adopt Coton de Tulear puppies for sale, the breed is regaining in numbers. It will likely one day become a very popular pet due to its many great physical and personality qualities. 

2. These Dogs Don't Shed and are Virtually Odorless

While the "Coton" in the name of the breed was chosen based on the dog's fluffy, cotton-like coat, that coat is made of hair and not fur, and that means that a dog of this breed will not leave sheds of fur all over your home. A Coton de Tulear puppy will shed its "puppy coat" once, but after that, you will find very little, if any, of the dog's hair around the house. In addition, if you have always wanted a puppy but are afraid that their odor will cause your asthma or allergies to act up or simply bother your nose, then this dog is a great choice due to its reputation for being very low-odor. 

In fact, many consider the Coton de Tulear to be a hypoallergenic dog breed, so if you are unsure if you can introduce a dog to your home due to family allergies, then this is one breed of dog that is much less likely to trigger allergy attacks than many others. 

If you are considering adding a new puppy to your family, then look into Coton puppies for sale to take a look at this adorable toy dog that gets along well with both children and other family animals. After adopting one, you can feel good about helping to preserve the breed.
