The name means "Cotton" in French and Tulear was the island port on Madagascar where they were bred and cultivated. The name is pronounced "coTAWN day two-LEE are." Closely related to the Bichon Frise and Maltese, the Coton is its own breed and is recognized as such by most registries.
A Shipwreck Happy Ending
It is said the Coton de Tulear developed from little white dogs who survived a shipwreck near Madagascar (off the SE coast of Africa). While no one is totally sure if their survival was a remarkable gift from the sea or a sweet story told to children and dog lovers, the result is the same. The Coton de Tulear is a quintessentially happy-natured, beautiful little dog. OMG, the Gilligan's Island song is stuck in my head. That makes me officially OLD.
