About Lake Superior Cotons!
We are certified by the Madagascar Coton Club of America
(mCTCA) as an ethical breeder of the
rare Madagascar Coton De Tulear
(pronounced coe-TAWN day TULE-ee-r)
I started looking for a puppy when my beloved border
collie, Hattie, was getting very old and I didn't want
to be without a dog. I thought a puppy might give
Hattie a new spring in her step too!
I knew I wanted a companion-type dog and I was
looking at Bichons when I was introduced to the
Coton De Tulear. No question about it...this was the
dog for me.
Sukha came from Kolosky Cotons in Bakersfield, CA.
Her dam was Pelli, sire Tucker.
I also decided I wanted to breed these dogs. I had
raised smooth-coat St. Bernard's years ago and I
was ready to enjoy raising puppies again. Moving
through the certification process to have a
'breedable' Coton is a committment ethically and
financially plus it takes time and effort.
