Multiple registries with differing standards describe the Coton de Tuléar, but in general, it has very soft hair, comparable to a cotton ball, a prominent black nose, large expressive eyes (usually covered by bangs) and somewhat short puffy legs.

Coat and color

Coton de Tuléar has a medium- to long-hair, fluffy, cotton-like coat that is hair rather than fur. It is a non-shedding breed with low dander. There is no such thing as a hypoallergenic dog however; like the poodle or his cousin, the Havanese. This breed has no "doggie smell", though it will still smell like a wet dog after a bath. The Coton de Tulear comes in different colors, white, white with light brown spots, black and white , and black (not an acceptable color). The beauty of the Coton is that as it gets older the color spots on it fade away, so eventually it will be pure white.
