They are not afraid of children and make great family pets. The puppies are both endearing, charming, and light hearted. Cotons are highly intelligent, love to play games and love their families. They can be clownish and love to twirl and dance. Cotons pat their paws on the floor and perform humorous antics. They are like a big dog in a small body.
Cotons, specifically, are:
cheerful and charming (known as the anti-depressant dog)
calm and yet very confident
celebrate your homecoming after separations
exude happiness and harmony
even though they love you to pieces, they have an independent spirit
