Neonatal Cerebellar Ataxia DNA Test

It is official, the DNA test for Neonatal Cerebellar Ataxia for Coton de Tulear is now available.
This is wonderful news since this is a serious fatal disease. Fortunately it is not common in Cotons and now that we have a DNA test, we could conceivably eliminate it from the breed entirely.

Animal Planet Investigates Petland and Puppy Mills

Tonight is the night Animal Planet begins airing their program on Petland pet stores and their connection to unethical and inhumane puppy mills.
Make sure you tune in or TIVO!
The ACC's mission is to protect the Coton de Tulear by educating the public on ethical breeding and exposing abuse and exploitation.
Keep in mind as you're viewing this program that the Coton is a "rare breed". If they do not remain a "rare breed" and become recognized by the AKC you WILL see many many more Cotons living under the brutal conditions of puppy mills because more and more people will profit from their breeding the Coton.
Please help us keep the Coton de Tulear safe from puppy mills, Petland and pet stores.
