    Please add the coton rescue to your page: http://www.cotonrescue.us/

    Please note the following: AKC will accept the Coton into the miscellaneous class within the next few months. Currently cotons are only AKC-FSS (foundation stock)

    Parent Club Approval for Miscellaneous Class Breeds
    The Board reviewed the clubs that Staff has recommended to serve as the Parent Club for
    Spanish Water Dog and the Coton de Tulear. This will be discussed further at the April meeting. http://www.akc.org/pdfs/about/board_minutes/0211.pdf

    Please consider adding the Papillon Breed to your list and the 3 National rescue groups:
    http://www.pap911rescue.org – Papillon 911 Rescue and Adoption
    http://www.paphaven.org – Papillon Haven Rescue
    http://www.pcarescuetrust.org – Papillon Care and Rescue Trust

    Papillons are, unfortunately, very prevalent in the puppy mills and in the pet store who get their stock from the mills.
    Thank you
