Male or female Coton de Tulear?

by Lizzy Hammill
(Minnesota)

My boyfriend and I are looking to get our first dog. I discovered the Coton de Tulear while online and fell in love, but read somewhere that males are more affectionate than females. Is there any truth to this?


Size-wise we were leaning more towards a female because we prefer a smaller dog but if a male will be more cuddly then we would go in that direction. Of course every dog is different but this is more of a general question.

My coton
by: Anonymous

When I gpt my coton, I was also torn for the same reasons. I ended up going with a girl after learning more about the breed and thinking it wouldn't make a difference. Well, it didn't. She's a sweetheart, and small at barely 8lbs and 3 years old!

Female loveball

I have a female coton and she is really affectionate, loving and cuddly. She is particularly in love with her daddy but she never forgets her mummy.
I think that Cotons are by nature affectionate so sex doesn't really matter. It's then only a metter of size.
Good luck with finding your baby Coton.

male or female?
by: Anonymous

I have to agree with everyone. I have a male about 12lbs and he is the most loveable dog. He loves to lick my children and husband all over there faces ( he knows I don't like it ). He also loves to curl up and cuddle with us all the time. You will be very happy with your coton.

I have a Male, Romeo, he is the most loving,cuddly and very smart Dog.He even rings a bell to go out. I wanted a Female at first but am so happy I have him. He is 13 lbs which is a perfect size dog. Either choice is good as long as you get a true Coton.

Girl or boy

I wanted a female initially, but when Simon was born - he was one of three in the litter and they were all males. I have to say, I fell in love with him the moment I met him. Cotons are simply the most loving little dogs and I can tell you that whichever you choose, male or female -- you will be very happy.

FEMALE
by: KATHY ADN TRISCUIT

I HAVE A FEMALE, TRISCUIT IS HER NAME, AND LOVE IS HER GAME, SHE IS SO CUDDLY. SHE LOVES TO BE HELD, AND WHEN SHE IS SLEEPING ON MY LAP, SHE USUALLY WILL SLEEP ON HER BACK OR ROLL HERSELF INTO A LITTLE FUZZY BALL. I CAN PROBABLY SAFELY SAY THAT THE COTON'S ARE THE BEST, NO MATTER IF THEY ARE MALE OR FEMALE, GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR CHOICE AND PLEASE PUT SOME PICS UP. KATHY AND TRISCUIT FROM PA
