In each litter Polly has had – she has at least one “tall coton”. These elegant longer legged Cotons are the rarest of the rare Coton breed. Johanna (named after Johanna Long - my husband is an avid race fan!) is looking like she is going to be a “tall”. A little larger than her siblings, notice the longer legs in the 2nd photo. Born Feb 8 - Johanna will be ready to go home on April 12.

All of our puppies come with a Vet exam, updated vaccinations, and are dewormed regularly. They get plenty of love and attention. We also will have them started with potty training. They are APRI Registered, although we sell our pups as Pet Only, so registration does not come with the puppy. Should you decide you want the registration, we can have the puppy registered to you for an additional $100. Shipping is an option for an additional fee. Visit our website www.bishopkennels.com for more info and pics!
The Coton is a playful, affectionate, intelligent breed. It is a very vocal breed, grunting, barking and making other noises when having fun. Some Cotons have a habit of jumping up and walking on their hind legs to please people. Some Cotons may exhibit shyness or cautiousness in new situations, especially around strangers, but this can usually be overcome with training. Most Cotons love meeting new people and are very curious in new situations. The dogs are very trainable with praise, instead of punishment. Cotons are great with kids and love to play.
The Coton is in general a healthy breed. The Coton de Tulear has many fewer disorders than many other breeds due to little inbreeding, the Coton is a fairly rare breed. The fact that they are rarer breeds means the Coton de Tulear has faced very little inbreeding, the source of many canine health disorders. The average life span of a Coton de Tulear is 16 to 18 years.
