UPDATE September 26, 2018

Ozzie is a very sweet boy.  Loves to be near a person.  He is looking for “his” new person.  Ozzie is a special needs boy.  He gets around ok, but has cataracts.  He will soon be 12 years old in Jan.  He needs soft food as he is missing several teeth.  He is fearful, but I think it is due to his eye sight, or lack of.  He has a wonderful temperament, gets along well with my gang.  Ozzie needs his own person, who will devote love and attention to him, he deserves it.  Please help me find him a good loving home.

10 1/2 yrs , 13 lbs, neutered Coton de Tulear. Rescued at 1 1/2 yrs from a person that was not too kind to him :(.  He loves his people and watches out for them.   Leash trained, Potty trained (pads or outdoors), bed sleeper – with humans 🙂
Healthy boy (no medications)  
Had last dental with some extractions in 2017. Will need a recheck. Up to date on vaccines.  Currently not being exercised/walked. He would be even a happier boy with more activity.  He has a tendency to be fearful and will need some cozying up to to win him over , but once done you will be his person.  He has not been around many children.  He is a brave boy that guards his castle and tends to bark his territory.   Goes to groomers regularly.  He has been with BERRY his entire life.

Meet BERRY:  Berry is no long available

12 yr neutered Chinese Crested. Purchased from a breeder as a pup. His photos are the last two. Berry is as sweet as sweet can be.Give him a lap and he’s in heaven.  Super Affectionate and loving. Leash trained, potty trained (pads or outdoors), bed sleeper – with humans. 🙂    He loves people and is good with everyone including children.    Does not bark.   Goes to groomers regularly.    Up to date on vaccines.  He has had a weepy eye but it comes and goes.  His teeth will need some attention as they have not been addressed for a bit.  He has a possible cyst on one of his kidneys.  These two boys have been together for 9 years. It would be the best case scenario if they can both stay together.

USACTC, Inc operates Coton Rescue One. As the Coton de Tulear Parent Breed Club for AKC, we will be working with individual’s that volunteer with No Kill Shelters across the United States. We will set forth guidelines to educate, advance, and protect the interests of re-homing and rehabilitating pure bred Coton de Tulear dogs. Members of the Coton Rescue One Association will conduct themselves with honesty and openness, regardless of the location, circumstances or people involved.


1. To identify and take into immediate care, Cotons who have been lost, abandoned, surrendered or otherwise disowned.
2. To find suitable adoptive homes for these dogs.
3. To provide all possible assistance to an adoptive home to ensure the permanent welfare of the adopted Coton.
4. To educate the public regarding our purpose and scope of our activities.
5. To educate surrendering owners to prevent the dog from being turned into rescue.
