Arturo is a 2-year-old Coton de Tulear rescue. He loves cooling off on the patio floor. The Coton de Tuléar is a breed of small dog known for its cotton-like coat and named for the city of Tulear (also known as Toliara) in Madagascar. This breed is thought to have originated from a group of small white dogs that swam across the Malagasy channel following a shipwreck. Arturo lives with the Blomstrom family — Maddox and Jeff — in Land O’ Lakes.
