Choosing a small breed dog like the Coton de Tulear is an important decision to make for you and your family.
Because I've never met a dog I didn't like, finding the right dog was tough for me. I love ALL dogs so it was hard to decide on
the right breed for me. I can’t say that the Coton de Tulear is
necessarily better than any other dog (pretty close though). You really
have to keep your lifestyle in mind and the reasons you have for
choosing small breed dogs.
When I made a list of all the things I was looking for in a pet, my dog Luc fit like a glove. Putting aside his overall cuteness factor (I know it’s awful hard to resist that), I was looking for a small breed dog since I lived in a townhouse, a smart dog that would train easily, a companion dog, and a friendly dog that would get along with children, adults and other animals, especially my somewhat aloof cat, Lila.
Finding the right dog is not always easy and there are so many small breed dogs to pick from. I feel very fortunate to have found this small rare breed dog that is basically everything I was looking for and so much more.
Basically, Luc is the perfect dog for me. Plus as an extra added bonus he doesn't shed, he’s not yappy, he stands on his hind legs to give great hugs (but watch out – he uses this trick to “steal” anything he finds interesting on counter tops and tables), he cocks his head and listens to you when you tell him about your day.
Oh boy, I can go on and on and on ……
He’s also very adaptable. He’s happy getting lots of exercise
and he’s also content lying at my feet when I have my work to do. He’s
protective of me when someone he doesn’t know comes in the house, but
he’s not aggressive and would never hurt anyone.
Are you choosing a:
All of the above? - Then the Coton de Tulear may be the dog for you.
When you're choosing a dog, the bottom line is you have to find what characteristics make up your “perfect dog”.
