about us


After losing our Golden Retrievers to cancer, we began looking for a breed of dog that would be both healthier and smaller.  We wanted a small but sturdy dog that would be good with our future grandchildren, easy to train, and one that would become an integral part of our family.  Our search led us to the rare Malagasy Coton de Tulearr, which originated in Madagascar, and our first Coton, Daisy.  We fell in love instantly with this 10-week-old, 3-lb ball of fluff!  It wasn’t long before we added our sweet black and white Coton, JoJo.  They  bring us comfort by sitting in our laps, make us laugh multiple times a day with their antics, and help us find joy in each day.  We want more people to experience the joy of this lovable breed so we established Hafaliana Cotons.  Hafaliana means joyful and happy in Malagasy, the official language of Madagascar.

Daisy, Age 3 months

We brought her home right after Thanksgiving and this was our Christmas card that year!

JoJo, Age 4 Months

JoJo was bred by Josie Kwienciski of Crunchy Cookie Cotons.  This was taken after her first official groom.



We love how she smiles for the camera!  She has a very sweet personality!
