If anyone is interested, my dog is a Coton de Tulear who is around 4 years old, and his name is Ace. He is a very friendly dog and loves to give kisses. Coton de Tulears are an excellent breed and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a small to mid-sized non-shedding best friend. Ace is a little large for his breed and weighs around 20 pounds purely due to size. Typically Cotons are groomed to have long hair, but we give Ace ‘puppy cuts’ so that he is easier to maintain (and we think he is cuter this way). The hair he does has is the softest of any dog I have ever pet. Fun fact: Coton de Tulear dogs are known as the royal dogs of Madagascar.
