Cuddly Cotons ~ Coton De Tulear Breeder 


Testimonals from customers

M & M

My daughters, McAra and Myranda have been watching "Too Cute"  on Animal planet for the past couple of years. They have been dreaming of getting a new puppy and would often show us the puppies featured on the show. One day they showed my wife and I a dog featured called "Coton de Tulear". Intrigued by the way the dog was portrayed on the show, I began to research on the internet for more information. I came across Linda's web site. I was impressed with the website because it was up-to-date and very detailed. It answered most of the questions I had. I read the testimonies and decided to e-mail Linda to ask some questions. Linda e-mailed back with 24-48 hours and I was impressed. Linda was very helpful and was patient with us. We never felt pressured. We looked at the photos and decided on a Honey bear. What a blessing this little dog is. Our daughter's have name the puppy M&M after their own names.  M&M fits right into our family. It has only been 2 months and we are so grateful that we chose to go with Linda. When we went to pick up M&M, we noticed how well she cares for the dogs and was impressed with how knowledgeable Linda is. I assumed once we got M&M we wouldn't hear from Linda. That was not the case Linda checked on M&M and offered suggestions to help with the transition. We are so happy and highly recommend getting a Coton de Tulear or a Honeybear from Linda and CuddlyCotons.


We purchased a puppy from Linda and named him Greyson. Both of my kids wanted a dog
for many years and anyone who knows me can surly agree to the fact that I am not a dog lover or like any animal for
that matter. However, I thought having a dog might teach my kids responsibility and a life long lesson of keeping your word.
I am so thankful I found the Cuddly Cotons website and Linda. She is a quality breeder and I am very lucky
To have a friend like her.
She answered all my 1st time puppy owner questions no matter how ridiculous they were.
We also appreciate Linda taking Greyson back to her house when we were on vacation. Greyson
has such a pleasant personality and always cheerfully greets us when we come home. He knows when your having a bad day and tries his best to make you feel better.
I never thought I would say this, but life wouldn't be the same without Greyson. He makes our family complete and we love him to death! If anyone is contemplating purchasing a Coton de tulear or Honey bear, I would highly recommend talking to Linda. She know her stuff, her puppies are top quality, and she takes care of you after the sale.
Thanks again Linda!
Randy, Sue, Melissa and Christopher Zandstra
And Greyson too!


Hi Linda

Sailor is doing great and such a huge part of our family...she's just like her Mom...always giving out kisses and the center of attention. I just love her so much~ Tracey


Paizley is the 3rd puppy I have gotten from Linda in 6 years.  She is a Maltipoo and 

my others are a Coton de Tulear and a Honey Bear (Coton de Tulear/Maltese/Shih Tzu mix).  

Every puppy I have gotten from Linda has been healthy and well socialized.  Linda is 

passionate about her pups and very knowledgeable.  She is always on hand to answer 

questions during the purchase process and afterwards.  This is not just a job to her, but 

a calling.  I'm very thankful that I came across her website because my puppies are my 

world and I have made a lifetime friend in Linda.  If I decide to get another pup, she 

will be the only one I contact.  You can't go wrong with Linda or her puppies! 


My husband and I recently brought home our sweet little  Franklin, and he has 

been the most wonderful addition to our family. As first time puppy owners (as adults), we did a lot of research to find a responsible, knowledgable, and loving breeder close to home, and had to look no further than Linda at Cuddly Cotons. From day one, Linda made the process an enjoyable experience for us and for our puppy; 

until our puppy was ready to come home, Linda encouraged that we visit him periodically so that the transition home would be easier for all of us (and it was!).

Linda and her family regularly held, played with, and socialized Franklin and his litter 

mates from day one, and each puppy was treated like they were part of her family. With so much attention in his formative weeks, it's no wonder why our little Franklin is the most gentle, loving, playful, trusting, and intelligent puppy we could ask for.

Our veterinarian has also had nothing but great things to say about the health and 

strength of our little guy, and we credit Linda's outstanding job for that.

Thanks for everything, Linda!


Hi Linda!

Hope you are doing well. Just wanted to give you an update on our Bella (born 

June 26, 2015). We absolutely adore her!  She is really the best little dog around.  

She had a fun summer traveling to our lake house in the U.P., loves boat rides, 

swimming, and swinging in the hammocks on someones lap. We really had no idea how much 

joy she would bring to our family. When one of my boys have a rough day, they snuggle 

with her for Bella therapy..and it really does work.  She also loves Mondays, when 

everyone is back to school and work (me too!). She basically sleeps the entire day to 

recover from the weekend craziness. 

Our only regret is that we wonder if we should have gotten two dogs so she would have a 


Happy Holidays and thank you again for our sweet girl!



"We feel truly blessed to have found such a wonderful breeder. We now have the most loving, playful, adorable, sweet and special buddle of coton love in our lives. We honestly love this breed. After spending weeks researching and calling breeders, I finally found Linda. She answered all our questions, invited us into her home, gave us lots of great advice, and truly cannot be happier.  He was so spoiled and loved when we picked him up to go home."

WAVE~Our Coton de Tulear

Hi Linda,

It is hard to believe, but Wave will be a year old in a few months.  I am just wondering, is this dog part human?  It never ceases to amaze me how quickly he learns and what he will come up with next.  He is super smart (and sassy)!  Our family jokes that he is the dog that actually does all the crazy things you see dogs doing in the movies.  He loves everyone and just about wiggles and jumps out of his skin until he can say hello.  He loves to play with my kids and wake them up each morning.  He loves walks, being outdoors, and playing in the snow.  You were not kidding when you said these dogs love to be around people and love attention.

When our family first started talking about getting a new puppy, I had never heard of a Coton de Tulear.  The entire process of choosing a dog (as opposed to adopting the latest stray) was overwhelming for me.  When I stumbled upon your website and started reading about the breed, I still had doubts.  I was amazed at your quick response to my website inquiry, and I appreciate that you actually called me to talk.  I never felt like I was bothering you or asking obvious questions.  We especially appreciated when you set up an opportunity to meet one of your puppies, Oliver, who lived close to us.  My husband has allergies and when he had no reactions to Oliver, it was a done deal!  You made the entire process of getting Wave simple and we waited eagerly for the updates and photos you sent as he was growing each week.  Thank You for everything! 

Wave has had no health issues.  To my delight, he weighs in at a solid 16 pounds!  Even though he is a small dog, I love that he can keep up with the kids.  We are looking forward to a great summer!




Hi Linda,

We had such a great experience with you. Bentley has fit right in and is very well adjusted. He is such a joy to our home. We were impressed with you from the very first phone call. Being able to go see your puppies really let us know that they were coming from a good home. It was fun to be able to pick him out too. You gave us invaluable tips from what kind of cage to buy to how we should schedule his shots. Not to mention what to do when he is biting and how we should wait to have him play with other dogs. Bentley is fun and full of life. He even likes the vacuum cleaner. Thank you for treating your puppies with such care. Your love for them shines through in how well adjusted they are. Bentley still has some accidents in the house and he can be a bit of a rascal at times (eating a hole through our carpet) but we wouldn't want any other puppy. Thanks for everything!  Merry Christmas!!!

Hi Linda!

I hope you had a great time at the holidays. We certainly did. Just wanted to send you a 

quick note on how Bailey is. 

She is doing so great. She is so good. I can't believe how calm she is at her age. We 

take her everywhere with us if we can, she is a great traveler. We absolutely love, love 

having her in our family.  My husband just adores her. Haha. It's hilarious. 

The only issue I had is I took her to a groomer who absolutely butchered her.    They 

gave her a bad haircut, It is just beginning to look good now. 

Thanks Linda for such a wonderful addition to our family!
