The USACTC has been named the AKC Parent Club for the Coton de Tulear. They may have received the privilege of calling themselves the Parent Club, but the Coton de Tulear has still not been officially AKC recognized. There can be no "standing on the fence" any longer. Coton fanciers need to pick a side and they need to either fight FOR the Coton to preserve the integrity and health of the breed, or they fight to SHOW the Coton on the red carpet with AKC for their own selfish glory. There are no in betweens. If you are a member of the USACTC Club, then you are pro-AKC and you support Puppy Mills by association. Please join us NOW in our continued opposition of AKC recognition for the Coton de Tulear! We must "ACT" swiftly, and we must unite with the common goal of protecting this wonderful breed from the greedy hands of the AKC.
