Considerations in Aquiring a Coton de Tulear

At present, there are many breeders selling dogs they claim are "Coton de Tulear" in this hemisphere.  The breed is now being bred in puppy mills.  Most of these dogs are not genuine, purebred Cotons de Tulear.  Your only assurance of breed purity is purchasing a Malagasy Coton de Tulear through an mCTCA Code of Ethics Breeder.  Note that some breeders associated with the dog show fancy (and the AKC-FSS program) are selling European dogs that are bred to the French Coton de Tulear Standard.  This is a different breed than those sold by mCTCA Breeders and registered by the mCTCA.

The mCTCA, created in 1976, is the original founding club and registry for the breed in this hemisphere.  Dr. Robert Jay Russell, a biologist working on Madagascar and former President of the mCTCA originally sent Cotons from Madagascar to the U.S. in 1974 and 1975, thereby establishing the breed outside of their native island home.  Since the 1970s, the mCTCA has maintained a sure control and guidance of the breed's standard, registrations, and stud book.  When a puppy is registered by the breeder with the mCTCA, the owner receives an official Pedigree Certificate, suitable for framing.

mCTCA Coton de Tulear puppies are sold as either "Not Breedable", (must be neutered), or "Potentially Breedable", (not neutered and potentially breedable if it passes the comprehensive mCTCA HealthTests at one year of age).  Puppies go to their new homes at about 10-12 weeks old.  Note that Not Breedable Quality Cotons are wonderful companions but may not be used for breeding.  Prices range from about $3,000 for a Not Breedable Coton to about $4,000 for a Potentially Breedable quality depending upon subtle nuances of conformation, age, etc.  Breeders, not the mCTCA, establish kennel policy and prices, so please contact them for specifics.  The Coton de Tulear is one of the world's rarest pure-breeds.  Introduced into the Western Hemisphere in 1974, today there are fewer than 5,100 mCTCA registered Cotons in North America.  Expect to wait some time for an mCTCA registrable puppy.  Breeding quality dogs cannot be rushed.

The mCTCA's Code of Ethics Breeders List presents breeders who, to the best of our knowledge, adhere to the club's extensive code of ethics.  The mCTCA accepts no advertisements from breeders, helping to insure that the recommendations remain an honest assessment of the breeder's merit.
