Welcome to Windy & Ryder's website!

Our breed is Coton de Tulear (pronounced "coe-TAWN de TULE-ee-r) our
ancestors were brought to the United States in 1974 from Madagascar by
Dr. Jay Russell.  There are 2 main breed standards: Malagasy (CTCA) and
European (FCI).

We are Malagasy Cotons, we are a very diverse group and embrace all
colors: White, Tricolor and Black & White.  Some of us are small and some
of us a little bigger, but not too big.  If we are a Tricolor we will be born
with some color; white, brown and black. But our color will fade as we get
older, some of us will fade all the way to white and some of us keep a little
bit; usually fading to silver & champagne.  A black and white is the rarest
of colors and doesn't fade as much, but the black will usually turn silver
or gray over time.

Our human parents are Jaycee & Debbie Newman, they are proudly code
of ethics breeders with the Malagasy Coton de Tulear Preservation Club
(MCPC). This is a new club for Coton de Tulear breeders interested in
breed preservation by participating in a genetic diversity study using
DNA genotyping and DNA analysis to understand the inbreeding
coefficient and diversity in our breed.
