When I fostered Eloise then adopted Eloise she was a Maltese mix. I have lived with her for five years now and she is still listed as a Maltese mix. I just saw a Coton and thought Eloise looked like that dog. She has soft fur She is so bossy. She is my alarm clock as she taps me when it is time to get up and talks to me when it is time to eat. I have never had to train her as she just seems to know what to do. I walk her without a leash, she gets along with people and other pets, and loves to be with me. Eloise has health issues but that does not keep her from being a super wonderful family member.
