A First Class Breeder

It took me over 1 year to research the Coton breed and make a decision. Then I began the breeder research. I live in Nebraska and really did not want to travel to several states to meet the various breeders that were highly recommended. Then I stumbled onto Barb at Heartland Classics through a friend whose daughter got their Coton from her. And how convenient to have a first class breeder and business woman in my own backyard, only a1 hour drive away! So the rest of my search and process of waiting for a Coton is now history. We picked up Shay's Charley yesterday, December 2nd. He is a very healthy, perfect male Coton. He was already litter box trained and is proving to be the perfect dog for our little 2 unit family. We expected a sleepless, restless first night. BUT NOT AT ALL. We heard rustling around a couple of times, but only to use the litter box and get some water and food. I am so impressed with Barb's using litter boxes with her moms and their litters of pups. We have had not one accident in nearly 24 hrs since we picked him up and he goes into his pen to use his box! He even prefers to nap and rest in his large playpen. He really does know he has his own "house". Because he was raised with his mother and littermates this way, he is a dream puppy to have. Thank you Barb for your dedication to your dogs and their litters. You are providing the best care ever. Charley has been given an identification chip, kept up with his puppy vaccinations and health checks. So we didn't have to worry about "catching up" with vaccinations and health issues. We have our new vet/health check on Monday. We are confident he will be given an A++ report.
