The Pug-Coton mix is interesting in that one of the parent breeds, the Coton de Tulear, is a relatively rare breed despite its singularly beautiful coat and healthy genetic make-up.

If the Pug was bred, propagated, and pampered by the Chinese ruling classes, the Coton de Tulear is the island of Madagascar's national dog, and also used to be the domain of only the island rulers. Naval trade might have brought the breed onto the island, but it was there that it flourished and was recognized. Today, standards are maintained for the breed, and it has been gaining popularity in Europe and the US.

Both companion dogs, the Pug and the Coton de Tulear share similar traits that endear them to their owners and make their value readily obvious to dog breed enthusiasts.
