Is she really a coton?
I bought my little precious about a mounth ago, but I think her ears are very different from the pictures I saw. She hás pedigree and was bought of a recommended kennel. Also, her temperament fits the desciption - she is a doll. What do you think?
Of course we are gonna keep her no matter what, we love her so much, I was just very curious! Tks
How can I know if my dog is a Coton de Tulear?
I bought this cute little white dog as a pure maltese in a pet shop 2 years ago, they gave me the papers for me to register my puppy at the Continental and I did. When he grew up I notice he doesn't look to me like a Maltese and looking at information and pictures of the Coton de Tulear it seems to me he has more characteristics of the Coton than the Maltese . How can I find out what kind of dog he is? . I want Him to have puppies but I want to get for him a girl the same breed . Here some pictures of my dog Tobi.
Thanks for your information.

Is my dog a Coton de Tulear?
About a year ago I adopted what they called a "Westie mix" from a shelter...recently I have seen pictures of the Cotons and I have a feeling that my dog is one of them. Has anyone had any success with the DNA testing kits?
Opinions Please - What's My Breed?
Help, what's my breed?
Vana was rescued on the hwy 3 months ago and we are trying to determine her breed. Breeds that have been suggested: Havanese, Maltese, Coton de Tulear, havamalt, maltipoo, cotonese even shi-poo-
I have miniature schnauzers and don't know much about the other breeds except what I have learned from gathering info. Please tell me more about your breed. DNA results came in as: M. Poodle Mix/Portuguese Water Dog Mix might make up the mix: American Eskimo Dog, Coton de Tulear, Dachshund, Silky Terrier ,Chihuahua.
Results are being reanalyzed Porties can be 65lbs! The are re-checking the coton marker to see if the wrong family tree was followed by the computers- they do not have any cotons listed in their gallery?
Tell me what you think please:

Is my dog a Coton?
(Los Angeles, CA)
We found our little Gypsy about a year ago on a cold rainy night in front of our house eating trash. Long story short, he is now part of our family and is inseparable with my hubby. Since we take our dogs everywhere with us, people often ask us what breed he is. Our vet just told us he might be a Maltese, but we think he is way to big to be a Maltese (16-17 lb). So we are always curious what he might be, but regardless what he is, we love him the same.
When I was reading the personality of Coton, it's exactly describing our Gypsy. He is about 16-17 lb, extremely friendly with everyone (dogs, kids, people). He is very eager to please, very playful and mischievous. He has a very pronounced black nose and long nostril. He doesn't shed, and has pure white coat.
Here are some of his recent photos (after he got cleaned up. When we first found him, he was brown dog). I would greatly appreciate if someone cam give us some input on his possible identity. Thanks in advance~!
What distinguishes a Coton de Tulear from other small white dogs?
I have done my research and Coton de Tulear is definitely my breed of choice. However they are very expensive. I have been looking at animal shelters. I truly get confused with any small white long haired dog. How can I tell that its a Coton?
Is our Bailey a Coton de Tulear??
by Nicole Auger

My husband and I were blessed to have our Bailey show up on our doorstep one day. While we searched for his family, we fell in love with him and he's been with us ever since.
He is extremely playful, follows us on our heels, always wants to sit or sleep on our laps and gives kisses constantly. He has major separation anxiety problems, to the extent of not being able to be in a room alone, let alone home alone.
I thought he may be a Cockapoo, especially with his one light brown ear, but I've never been able to pinpoint his breed exactly...until I came across the Cotons.
The only thing about Bailey that makes me think he may not be, is that his nose is mostly brown with black around the edges (almost like he rubbed the black off).
What are your thoughts?
