Renaissance Running on Empty - "Jackson"
Jackson is the long awaited son of the ever so beautiful Koda and the lovely Olive. This beautiful bright white boy with very black pigment and a thick plushy coat is our hopeful to take over Dad's place one day. He has great structure and moves fluently. His Dad Koda is a very young 8 year old boy who has been producing some dynamite puppies with exceptional temperament here at Renaissance Cotons. We hope to continue his lines through the fun loving and absolutely gorgeous Jackson.
Renaissance King Renly
Renly is the son of Chyna and Kazaam. He is a near perfect example of the Coton de Tulear. His structure, pigment and coat are to die for. He has a beautiful neck and his movement is absolutely flawless. We love everything about Renly. He has a dynamite personality and loves everyone he meets. You just can't help falling in love with this little guy. I really hope to get him into the show ring in 2013. It isn't like years ago when there were shows mostly every weekend. Today, with the Coton de Tulear in the miscellaneous class of the AKC and soon to be fully recognized, the rare breed venues are just not around like they used to be.
Hunter de la Vanille Bourbon
Hunter comes to us all the way from France. Clarisse Kuntz of Vanille Bourbon Kennel has been kind enough to entrust us with one of her lovely dogs. Hunter has the cutest personality and he is a wonderful representative of the breed. He has a good strong rear, straight front, jet black pigment, and a nice white coat. He and Renly are already becoming best of friends.
International Champion & Champion of Spain
Mr. Armani Lacy Mandie
Mr Armani has come here all the way from France. He is a lovely boy with very nice structure and tailset. He has very nice movement and a wonderful disposition. He is quite the happy little man. Sandra Bearden, Connie Fox and Renaissance Coton de Tulear are just ecstatic to be able to add this beautiful boy to our breeding programs. Armani has made many beautiful puppies in Europe and many of his offspring have become champions as well. We are so grateful to Sylvio and Florence Faurez of Castel de la Roche aux Fees for allowing us the opportunity to welcome Armani to the USA. Mr. Armani is available for stud to approved bitches. Please contact us for more information.
Multi-Champion Diamond Uron du Miroir de Galadriel, CGC (Koda)
Koda was bred in France and then came to live with Linda Dolan of Diamond Cotons in RI. Koda has achieved his Multi-Champion status and also his Canine Good Citizen under the love and direction of Linda Dolan.
Koda continues to sire magnificent puppies here at Renaissance Coton de Tulear. Some of Koda's puppies have gone on to be Certified Therapy Dogs and Canine Good Citizens. His son Niko was featured in the very prestigious 2010 Edition of Dogs USA Magazine. Niko was also featured in Fetch Dog Catalog and will most likely model for Fetch Dog again in the future.
International Champion Bam Bam Kazaam of Cotonnelle
(Multi Best in Show Winner)
In 2008, at our AACDT National Specialty in NJ, I noticed the most beautiful boy running back in forth in one of the breeder's hotel rooms. I've never quite seen a Coton de Tulear move with such ease. Absolutely gorgeous. He reminded me so much of a smaller version of my wonderful boy Koda. I asked who owned him, and the rest is history.
My love and gratitude to the late Valerie Ford of Cotonnelle Kennels in Canada. Valerie died suddenly in October 2011 as a result of a car crash. Valerie entrusted me with her beautiful Kazaam and also became one of my dearest friends. Valerie will be missed by all. She left her footprint on this wonderful breed and for that, I am thankful. Godspeed dear Valerie.
