I breed and show the Cotons. The puppies are raised in my home with children. They are an excellent breed to have with children. I only have two females and one male that I breed. These are wonderful little dogs. They adapt to your life. They are great for people with allergies because they have hair and not fur. They shed like we do and do not blow their fur. Please contact me anytime with any questions. I do have references available on request. My puppies come with a health guarantee and vet check. I will ship for additional shipping fee which will include shipping crate/health certificate etc. I do prefer puppy pick up but I do understand that shipping is sometimes required. I also have driven to meet people for additional fee.
