Coton De Tulear

Breed History / Description

Although this, the 'Royal dog of Madagascar' was officially recognised as recently as 1990, the breed had been seen on the island of Tula for several centuries. The Coton in his title describes the texture of his single coat, which is a hallmark of the breed along with his arched loin giving him a distinctive outline.
