Puppy Photoshoot Day 2

     As a breeder, we make sure once our dogs go to their forever homes, that the change goes smoothly and that they are able to live a happy life with their owners.  In order to do this, we make sure that they are well socialized.  By the time the first puppy from Chi-Chi's "A" litter went to his home, the puppies had met nearly 100 people!  We take advantage of every opportunity for them to be held by new people.  While we were camping this weekend, they were held by a 90 year old and playful 8 year old boy.  That is quite the age span! Our goal is that when they go to their new home, they will be comfortable with every member of your family!

Puppy Photoshoot Day 1

     The puppies have sure had a busy past couple of days! They went camping this past weekend and loved being in the outdoors.  They are finally starting to be able to run without wobbling and stumbling!  They also went to the vet for their first vaccinations and puppy wellness check today. The vet sure thought they were a happy, healthy litter.

Bridget is Reserved

     The puppies' personalities are really beginning to shine through!  They are eating 3 times a day and growing bigger.  They got a new blankie today and are snuggling into the softness.

     Bridget is the explorer of the litter and is always playing with her brother and sisters.  If you are interested in making your home Bridget's forever home, feel free to either call me (208)-369-1200 or email me at

Betsy has gone to her Forever Home

     The puppies are finally beginning to take an interest in toys.  In corners of their puppy pen, there are hanging toys.  Today, they finally realized just how fun their toys can be! They especially like to play tug-o-war with a rope and ball vs. the corner of the pen.

     Betsy is a sweetheart! She loves to cuddle and play!  Her markings are very similar to her mothers- especially her face.  If you are interested in making your home Betsy's forever home, feel free to either call me (208)-369-1200 or email me at

Bailey has gone to her Forever Home

     Their noses are slowly becoming black! They love their puppy food and it sure makes them tired! After almost every meal they sleep for several hours.  Occasionally, one of the girls will get up and try to convince someone to play with her.  If the attempt is successful (which does not seem to happen very often), both puppies seem to eventually realize just how tired they are and fall right back asleep!

     Bailey has such a kind personality!  She loves to be held and doesn’t mind lying on her back.  Her easy-going personality will make her easy to train. If you are interested in making your home Bailey's forever home, feel free to either call me (208)-369-1200 or email me at

Bree has gone to her Forever Home

     Today is this litter's 5 week birthday!  We are slowly weaning them and encouraging them to eat puppy food and drink lots of water.  They are more playful than ever and are starting to recognize the family.

     Bree loves to play and is very polite.  She always waits her turn and has a docile, gentle personality.  If you are interested in making your home Bree's forever home, feel free to either call me at (208)-369-1200 or email me at

Bella has gone to her Forever Home

     The puppies are continuing to adjust to their new food.  I think Chi-Chi sure enjoys having a break from nursing her 6 puppies all the time! 

     Here are some pictures of the sweet Bella.  Today, she entertained us by lying on her back for about 3 minutes and playing with her paw.  Everything is so fascinating to them at this age!

Bullet is Reserved

    The puppies are extremely sweet!  They had their first taste of puppy food this morning and that sure did make them fall asleep. 

We caught him mid-yawn!

All 2013 puppies are up for adoption! One of them could be yours!

Betsy- Betsy has one large white spot on the top of her head and a large tri-color spot on her side.  She is very vocal but also loves to be held.  She seems to enjoy lying on her back- making her even more adorable!

Bree- Bree has the most white out of the entire litter.  She is very playful, outgoing and fairly petite.  She loves to talk to you and is normally one of the first to run up to you to greet you in the morning.

Bailey- Bailey is such a sweetheart! She loves to be held.  However, she never asks or requires it.  She has a passive personality which will make her easy to train.  She especially enjoys nestling her nose in the crook of your arm when you hold her.  Her face is almost entirely black with a small white streak.

Bella- In Latin, meaning beautiful, Bella is just that.  She has a tender personality and enjoys being held and cuddled.  Occasionally, she is known to whine to tell you she wants to be picked up. She has the most tri-color markings out of the entire litter.

Bridget- Although very outgoing and cheerful, she loves being cuddled just as much as any other puppy.  She loves to talk to you when she needs to tell you something and if that doesnt work, she will gently lick you until its clear she needs attention.  Her face is about 1/3 white and she has 5 tri-colored spots on her body.

Bullet- The only boy! His name describes him perfectly- he is a fast learner and a curious explorerer.  He always wants to know what is going on in the world around him and seems to constantly tells you what he thinks.  He is named Bullet because he has a small oval dot on the top of his head that has the appearance of a bullet.

Chi-Chi's 1st Litter- A's

        All Puppies from this litter have been placed in their forever homes

     On the night of November 22nd and early morning of November 23rd, our one and only Chimera Chiante of Enchanted Hills had 5 beautiful puppies sired by Ren O'Reilly of Blue Mountain Cotons. 

Adora Rose- Adora is very playful and is always in the middle of attention.  She is the biggest explorer and was the first one to learn how to escape from the whelping box.  She is named Adora because she has a small heart on her flank.  Adora has found her forever home with Kelsey Creek Cotons!

Astro- Astro means star in Latin and that truly describes his personality.  He is independent, gentle and really enjoys cuddling.  He is also extremely easy going and docile.  He has two spots on his side that look like stars.  He found his forever home in Austin, Texas.

Apollo- Apollo comes from Greek mythology.  Apollo received his name because he is very strong.  He is independent and is also the most playful boy.  He has a saddle like shape on his back.  He found his forever home in Boise, Idaho.

Abe- Abe means the father of might.  He is extremely sweet and virtually melts into your hand when you hold him.  He enjoys being cuddled and is a happy puppy.  Abe found his home in Twin Falls, Idaho

Addy- Addy means beginning of life. She is sweet, calm, enjoys attention however she does not demand it.  She also very much enjoys playing with her brothers and sister.  She has a white bird-like shape on her left side.  Addy has gone to her forever home.


        The CTCA organization's purpose is to keep the breed pure (i.e. preventing health and disposition issues).  With almost every other breed of dog we find that they have become very prone to a certain health issues, or in some cases, have tempermant issues.  However, this is not the case for Cotons.
     In result of having a pure breed, all Coton puppies that are eligible for being bred are required to go through a series of tests* in order to be CTCA certified for example, some of the tests include; testing of the eyes, hips, heart, lungs, forelimb and hindlimb structure and tempermant.  Blood tests include a search for twenty-one individual things, and twelve individual blood cell tests.  These series of tests also include four tests for diseases.  Through these tests, only healthy dogs are bred which result in healthy puppies.

Our Story

          We are a family of four and love animals of all kinds.  We began searching for a dog in 2007.  Our youngest daughter, Ava, has a dog allergy which meant that our new pooch had to be hypo-allergenic.  The Coton breed is just that.  Not only is a hypo-allergenic dog good for those with allergies, but it is good for the whole family because they do not have that "dog smell".  After endless hours of research, we found the Coton De Tulear* breed.  We instandtly knew this was the dog for us.
     We finally found our Chimera Chianti, our beloved Chi-Chi, in Eugene, Oregon.  Since Chi-Chi came to us, she has been considered part of the family and is treated so!  We cannot believe that she is already 7 years old!  We knew we would always want to have Coton puppies.  Chi-Chi was bred the first time on September 25th and was due November 28th.  She had 5 puppies; 2 girls and 3 boys.  This litter was full of character.  They were so lovable, we could help but keep one for ourselves!  We decided to make Kelsey Creek Cotons Adora Rose's forever home.  Chi-Chi and Dorie love to keep each other company by playing frequently.
     Chi-Chi was bred again early this year and had a beautiful litter of 6 on May 7, 2013.  She had 1 playful boy and  5 beautiful girls.  All puppies are for sale and will be available to be picked up anytime after July 16.
     Due to our lifestyle, the puppies will receive excellent socialization.  They will be well socialized to men, women, and children of all ages.
