♥ about us ♥


A dog breeder for over 35 years, I was raised in a family who showed Cocker Spaniels. I bred Miniature Schnauzers for over 20 years, and then one day in 1993, I read an article in Dog World about the Coton de Tulear. Once I convinced Bill that it really is macho to be associated with a little fluffy white dog, we traveled to France to pick up our first Coton, Sammy. That’s all it took – we were hooked! After Sammy came Charlie, then Tiger, Tiffany, Xenia, Chou Chou, Star … well, you get the picture.

Cotons are people-oriented dogs. All of them are raised in our home and are never crated. They sleep with us and go everywhere we go. Bill volunteers at a nursing home and always takes a Coton or two with him when he visits the patients. The Cotons love it and the patients do, too!

Each Coton is shown throughout the country and is championed through the United Kennel Club (UKC), the American Rare Breed Association (ARBA), the American Kennel Club (AKC) and/or the International All Breed Canine Association (IABCA).



Champions are bred to champions, and we constantly strive to improve the Coton de Tulear line with good breeding practices. All of our dogs are health tested, and we are a Code of Ethics breeder with the North American Coton Association and the Coton de Tulear Breeders of Excellence.

We breed primarily for personality and temperament, and carefully select the breeding dogs. Our puppies are happy, well-socialized, are used to children, and are paper-trained by the time they go to their new home.

We meet and thoroughly screen each potential owner who may be interested in one of our Cotons. And, by the way, we do not ship our dogs.
