Welcome to the homepage of Tres Colores Australian Shepherds .

Kennel name 'Tres Colores' refers to three colors of our first Australian Shepherd , Propwash Samsara aka Ninni .

Australian Shepherds since 1992 - Vuolasvirta Plaque # 544 - 40 CHAMPIONS

From where did it all start ?

My name is Katri-Anneli Voutila born-57( Housewife/Dressmaker ) ,my husband is Raimo Voutila born -54 (Estate Manager ) and our two children are Veronica born -86 (Graphic Designer/Animator in Rovio) and Nicklas born -88 (Graphic Programmer).

We live in a little village call Gäddrag near city Porvoo . Our first dog was a samoyed male call Max and when he died at the age of seven so we decided to look for a healthier race .

After visiting family-Alho and the first Aussie in Finland (unregistered gorgeous blue merle Australian Shepherd male called 'Seffy') we knew that this race was what we were looking for .

Tres Colores Australian Shepherd started in 1992 when we imported and registered the very first Australian Shepherd in Finland :

CH. PROPWASH SAMSARA "NINNI"

Our next two Aussies were also imported from USA , Propwash Farm :

CH. PROPWASH WEB SWEEPER "WEBSTER"

CH. PROPWASH MANAPE CRACK O DAWN "DOLLY"

Our gang includes :

TRES COLORES LATOYA DREAM "MINNI"

TRES COLORES KOH-I-NOOR "NORIKO"

TRES COLORES WINTERBEAR "NALLE"

All our Aussies have been mentally and physically healthy.Their lines are based on the old foundation bloodlines such as Slash V , Sisslers ,Taylors , Las Rocosa,Hanging Tree and Hartnagles.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

AN AUSSIE CAN DO IT ALL , THAT IS ONE REASON WE LOVE THIS BREED SO MUCH .THEIR VERSATILITY ALONG WITH THEIR INTELLIGENCE MAKES THEM AN ALL~AROUND ,GREAT DOG .

OWNING AND LOVING THESE GREAT AUSSIES IS A WAY OF A LIFE AND OUR AUSSIES ARE OUR BEST FRIENDS FIRST, BEFORE SHOW DOGS AND WE HAVE PERSONAL LIMIT ON HOW MANY DOGS WE CAN HAVE AT THE SAME TIME . OUR DOGS ARE NOT KENNELED AND THEY LIVE IN THE HOUSE WITH US. WE HAVE A LARGE AMOUNT OF LAWN AND FOREST FOR OUR DOGS TO RUN AND PLAY IN. WE BELIEVE ITS IMPORTANT TO SPEND QUALITY TIME WITH EACH OF OUR DOGS DAILY.

ITS NOT OUR CUSTOM TO PUT DOWN SENIORS SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE BECOME USELESS AND A BURDEN . ALL OUR DOGS LIVE IN A FOREVER HOME , UNTIL ITS TIME TO SAY GOODBYE .

 

WE BELIEVE IN QUALITY NOT QUANTITY , AND ,'CAUSE BREEDING IS NOT OUR SOURSE OF LIVELIHOOD WE HAVE PUPPIES VERY RARELY !

TO BETTER THE BREED WE PLAN EACH LITTER CAREFULLY CONSIDERING GENETICS,HEALTH ,TEMPERAMENT AND THE ASCA-AKC AUSSIE STANDARD . FOR BREEDING WE USE AUSSIES FROM HEALTHY BLOODLINES , WITH EXCELLENT TEMPERAMENTS , WITH HIPS & ELBOWS X-RAYD AND EYES CLEARED YEARLY .

OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE EXCEPTIONAL, INTELLIGENT,VERSATILE AND BEAUTIFUL AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS FOR SHOW,OBEDIENCE,AGILITY AND WORKING BUT MOSTLY FOR WONDERFUL COMPANIONS .

OUR PUPPIES ARE ALWAYS WELL SOCIALIZED,HANDLED AND LOVED , EYES/TESTED ,EXAMINED BY VET AND FULLY GUARANTEED. WE ALSO SELL ABROAD.

23 TRES COLORES AUSSIES HAS BEEN DNA~ TESTED AND TAKEN APART IN INTERNATIONAL STUDY TO FIND THE GENE OF NBT:s ; .IN FACT THE GENE OF NATURAL BOBTAILS IS NOW FOUND AND :

NATURAL BOBTAIL TESTS ARE PROVIDED HERE :
