Originally native to Madagascar, specifically the southern fishing town of Toliara, which was formerly known as Tuléar, Coton du Tulears wasted little time establishing themselves as a companion dog in France, before getting the rest of the world to slowly, but surely, fall in love with them.These white-coated dogs have dark round eyes that express liveliness and intelligence.
